‘We can’t cry over spilled milk…’ – Darren Moore is adamant that Sheffield Wednesday won’t dwell on another defeat
Sheffield Wednesday’s form doesn’t look in good shape at present, but Darren Moore – who has only been in charge for two of the six defeats in a row – remains determined to get his first win.
The Owls are very much in relegation form at present as they face the very real prospect of dropping down into League One if things don’t improve, but their manager says that they’re determined to put the 3-0 defeat at Reading behind them as they move on to the clash with Norwich City.
Wednesday were well beaten at the Madejski Stadium on Saturday after being reduced to 10 men after half an hour, but as far as Moore is concerned that is water under the bridge as they turn their focus to the Canaries.
They host Daniel Farke and his side on Sunday afternoon, and Moore says they’re keen to ‘refocus’, telling the media, “It’s gone now, we can’t cry over spilled milk, we have to look ahead and we have another important game to look forward to. We’ll refocus and regroup the boys in terms of the game against Norwich - which is an important match for us…
“We get to work now, and look at the structure of the week ahead in terms of the next game - and look to get some work into the players and get back on the training ground.”
And he’s got no regrets… When asked if he was having sleepless nights after leaving Doncaster Rovers for Hillsborough, he replied, No… “I’m waking up and thinking, ‘I’m at this wonderful football club, with a wonderful fanbase’ and what we’ve got to do is keep the belief going in the team and get that result that we’re all looking for.
“If we can get that then we’ll feel it’s all on.”
Wednesday - who remain seven points adrift of 21st-placed Birmingham City – face Norwich at 12.15pm on Sunday afternoon as they look to stop their opponents from making it eight wins in a row, while SWFC are desperate not to equal the seven-game losing streak that they hit back in 2012.
