Darren Moore felt Wednesday were worthy winners after this afternoon’s 3-2 victory at Accrington.
Having seen us take the points after racing into a three-goal lead before conceding twice, Moore said: “I thought it was a good win today, a worthy win. We battled well and used the ball well at times.
“After a blistering start, Accrington had something to hold onto going into the second half with the goal from the set piece, I’m going to have to look at that one from our end.
“Second half, they had a deflected effort that went in, I think we could have defended that better. But, credit to the boys in terms of concentration and all of them doing their jobs. It was about maintaining in the second half but we looked threatening on the on the break as well.”
The manager also had words of praise for the performances of youngsters Ciaran Brennan, on his league debut, Fisayo Dele-Bahiru and Theo Corbeanu, saying: “To come into this game with the conditions today, I’m really pleased for them. They’ll become men after games like that today with the experience and understanding of this kind of game.
“I’m mightily pleased they stepped up with the extra responsibility and performed the way they did.”
Reflecting on several good chances missed, Moore added: “The biggest concern has been getting on the end of chances and, even today, although we scored three, we could have scored more. We need to do more of the same and carry on putting chances away like we did today in the first half.”
He described crucial stops from Bailey Peacock-Farrell, one in each half, as “two wonderful saves” and said of the travelling 2,600 Wednesdayites: “Incredible. I expected to see them behind the goal, but when I came out and looked down the side I was saying, that’s our fans as well!”
