Darren Moore praised the overall team performance as Wednesday took all three points at Rotherham today to take over at the top of division one on goal difference.
Speaking after the 2-0 win, the Owls boss said: “I am pleased to get the three points. It was a pulsating derby.
“We were committed and together. Everyone played their part.”
Not suprisingly, he had a special word for keeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell’s full-length penalty save just before half time and with the score at 0-0, saying: “It was a great save from Bailey and a turning point in the game.”
Moore added: “I thought the players who came in played their part. Every single one of them did their job.”
The manager said that injured pair Sam Hutchinson and Lewis Gibson should be in contention for a place in the squad at Morecambe next Saturday, the former wanting to play at Rotherham but Moore deciding to keep him back.
