Moore explains double half-time switch

Darren Moore has talked about his half-time switch of strikers that sparked Wednesday’s recovery to earn three points at Doncaster this afternoon.

The Owls boss took off the ineffective Florian Kamberi and Sylla Sow with the Owls trailing 1-0 at half time, replacing them with Callum Paterson and Saido Berahino, and it proved to be a match-winning attacking move, with the pair scoring a goal apiece in our 3-1 success.

Moore said: “We’re really pleased with the three points today and it came courtesy of the second half performance. I thought it was a dominant display second half.

“To see Pato and Saido come on and change things was really pleasing.

”I’d seen Doncaster at Lincoln, they went 1-0 up and sat deep. So I brought Pato and Saido on because their back to play stuff is very good.

“Obviously, Lewis Gibson having 20 minutes after his injury is also wonderful.”

He added: “I said to the players at half time, just keep doing what you are doing, the chances will come.

“Pato showed some real bravery to get us back in the game, he’s come out of it with a shiner but he’s put his head where it hurts.”

Looking ahead, Moore said there is a possibility that Sam Hutchinson and Lee Gregory could be fit to rejoin the squad at Fleetwood on Tuesday night and on our promotion hopes added:  “Nothing is won or lost at this stage of the season but obviously our aim is to get into that top six and see where we can go from there.”
