Darren Moore praised Wednesday for a solid, professional performance after tonight’s 3-0 win over Morecambe at Hillsborough.
The victory keeps us in second place in the division one promotion chase, taking our unbeaten league record to 18 games, and Moore said: “We got off to a solid start after a minute and it settled us down. It was a good pass by George and Baz took his goal very, very well. We then got the second one before half-time and we just wanted the players to stay concentrated. If Morecambe then came they would leave holes which we could exploit.
“That didn’t happen because they were 2-0 down but stayed in the low block. There was then a brilliant bit of skill by Fizz at the end, creating something out of nothing for Josh. I thought we were worthy winners.”
The game also marked our 18th clean sheet of the season, a new club record, and the manager said: “As a former defender, I love clean sheets so I’m really pleased. I’ve said to the players we’ve got that now but there’s so much of the season left and it’s up to us to maintain that.”
George Byers limped off at half time, Moore saying: “I think he’s got a dead leg. He ran into a Morecambe centre-back midway through the first half and I think it just tightened up on him. We’ll assess him in the morning with the medical team.”
Dominic Iorfa missed the game with a calf injury picked up against Ipswich on Saturday, Moore explaining he decided not to risk him against Morecambe, while Lee Gregory, Mallik Wilks and Jack Hunt are all likely to be in contention for the squad against MK Dons on Saturday after missing the last two matches.
