Darren Moore makes Sheffield Wednesday transfer admission as Deadline Day edges closer

Published

Sheffield Wednesday picked up their first league win of the new season on Saturday afternoon, as they ran out 2-0 winners over Doncaster Rovers at Hillsborough.

The Owls took the lead just 18 minutes from time, as Barry Bannan swept home a stunning strike from distance, before Dennis Adeniran doubled that lead just three minutes later.

Darren Moore’s side are now sat sixth in the League One table, and will be keen to build on a strong performance on the day against Moore’s former club.

Speaking in a post-match press conference (quotes sourced from Yorkshire Live), Moore revealed that he’s happy with his squad at this moment in time, and that there wasn’t a possibility of adding to his squad before the transfer window reached a conclusion.

“I am happy with where we are at it and it is about the squad settling down and getting some good consistency. It is about getting stronger every single week.

“If we could get one or two off the treatment table and back in, then we can keep that competition for places going.

“At the moment, there is none (No possibility of adding to the squad). Even though there is two weeks to go of the window, there has been a lot of activity at the club.

“We feel in terms of the bodies and numbers we have got in now, my biggest thing is focusing on getting them settled and getting that understanding going. We have got to keep working.”

Sheffield Wednesday are set to return to action on Tuesday evening, when they take on Fleetwood Town at Hillsborough, where they’ll be looking to make it back-to-back wins.

The first goal in the 06/07 season came in the third game, a 1-1 draw with Burnley. Who struck for the Owls?

The Verdict: 

It’ll be an interesting few weeks ahead at Sheffield Wednesday.

Darren Moore could be tempted to dip back into the transfer market before the end of the month, as he looks to potentially strengthen his squad even more, as they target promotion back into the Championship.

But it could also be a very few weeks, with some of Moore’s key players potentially being linked with moves elsewhere this summer, especially if they’re to build on a strong performance this weekend.

The next couple of weeks in the transfer window could make or break Sheffield Wednesday’s season.
