Moore predicts tough challenge at Morecambe

Darren Moore has warned his top-of-the-table Wednesday side to expect a tough game at Morecambe tomorrow.

Victory at Rotherham last Saturday took us into top spot in division one on goal difference while Morecambe have taken four points from their four games. Moore said today: “Morecambe are a team used to winning, as proven last year with their promotion.

“They are a club very much together, good results, bravery on the ball and a good tempo. They are not in league one to make up the numbers, it will be a tough game.”

Our excellent start to the campaign, with three wins out of four and no goals conceded, gives some much-welcomed early season optimism but the Owls boss also said: “We don’t want to be complacent in any our part of our game.

“We are nowhere near the finished article, so we are maxing out in terms of the work we are doing to be the best we can be.

“Attitude, good play, playing to your absolute potential – many aspects go into winning a game of football. We will need them all tomorrow.”

Moore said that Sam Hutchinson is “touch and go” following his injury but he may decide not to risk him and, instead, stick with Chey Dunkley who deputised at Rotherham. Massimo Luongo is ruled out after taking a knock at Rotherham.

Young striker Theo Corbeanu, on loan from Wolves, may well see some action tomorrow while forward Sylla Sow has trained all week and could be in the squad.

QPR loanee winger Mide Shodipo will not be risked after continuing his recovery from a hamstring problem but Everton defender Lewis Gibson is fit for consideration.

The game is a sellout for Wednesday fans.
