Sheffield Wednesday sunk closer to relegation into League One last night following a 2-0 defeat at home to Swansea City.
In an evenly contested game with nothing much in the way of chances, the promotion-chasing Swans were too much for the Owls in the end, taking the lead just after the half-hour mark thanks to Jamal Lowe’s strike.
Jay Fulton doubled the lead in the second half and that was that for Wednesday, who couldn’t find the scoring prowess they showed in their previous game at Hillsborough when they defeated Cardiff City 5-0.
With Rotherham defeating QPR on the same night, it’s left the Owls bang in trouble once again and they are now seven points behind 21st-placed Coventry City, who also have a game in hand against the Millers on Thursday.
Darren Moore returned to the touchline last night following a bout of COVID and had to witness his side slump to a second-straight defeat, but he issued a rallying cry after the game in which he said he won’t let his sides mentality drop.
Are these 17 facts about Sheffield Wednesday’s club badge true or false?
“The numbers are still there, three points are still there for us on Saturday and we can’t focus any further than that,” Moore said, per the club’s official Twitter account.
“I will not allow any player to look at it differently to that. We can only look to Saturday, we have to get ready for it and reset the minds.”
Despite Moore’s words, Wednesday fans seem resigned to playing in the third tier of English football next season as they’ve reacted to the manager’s comments.
Give it up Darren, let’s move this lot out now and build for next season. You won’t get anywhere with any of these losers.

DM, you sound like you are morphing into Monk and Pullis. Be your own man, we are down and you have to get rid of the inadequate players in that squad, around 70% by the looks of it. You had an impossible task but to get the fans back you need your own players.

Suppose he can’t say what we all know. The players are spineless and beyond hope
