‘We could have been better in the final third’

Darren Moore reflected on a lack of a cutting edgre in the final third after Wednesday’s lunchtime goalless FA Cup draw with Plymouth at S6.

The Owls boss said: “I thought we shaded it over the 90 minutes, certainly in terms of the chances we created. If there’s one critique today I would say we could have been better in the final third with the contacts we made.

“We had two or three chances in the second half which we could have done better with.”

On Lewis Wing’s added time miss, he said: “I thought that was the moment. He had so much time to look at it. Once it bounced, it sat up and didn’t come down but Lewis has still got the ability to get his foot over it.”

Moore added: “I said to the players at half time, with us being the home team, the onus was on us to take the game to them.

“I thought there was a little bit more of a spirited performance in the second half. It was still lacklustre in areas of the game where it was too quiet and passive.

“However, we limited them to very few chances and when they did create I thought Bailey had his stature back today and the save he made near the end was fantastic.”
