Sheffield Wednesday slumped to a 3-0 defeat at Plymouth Argyle on Saturday in what was arguably their worst result of the Darren Moore era.
Second half substitute Theo Corbeanu gave his thoughts on the poor performance when he spoke to YorkshireLive.
He said: “Definitely. It was a poor performance.
“It was a very sloppy game for our standards as a team. We’ve set ourselves very high standards for the season, and it’s something we’ll look to bounce back from. We need a positive reaction now.
“Everyone was very angry, very sad. Because we know we could have done a lot better.” he added.
Wednesday were exemplary in their first four outings, winning three and drawing one without conceding a goal, however back to back losses without hitting the target will be setting off alarm bells for Moore. Who after a positive transfer window at Hillsborough is under pressure to deliver a promotion push this season.
26 questions about Sheffield Wednesday’s managers from over the years – Can you score full marks?
Corbeanu has only made two substitute appearances in the league, currently on loan from Wolverhampton Wanderers, but the 19-year-old speaks with maturity and awareness of the situation at hand. The club’s hosting of 21st placed Shrewsbury Town on Saturday presents an excellent opportunity to get back to winning ways.
A very honest and productive reflection from Corbeanu, you can guarantee the squad will be put through their paces this week at the training ground taking this Saturday’s fixture very seriously in order to turn their form around.
The Green Army can be difficult opposition particularly from a defensive standpoint at times, Moore’s main disappointment though may be the lack of attacking output over the last two games.
Saido Berahino was introduced just before the hour mark, the Burundi international could add something different to their attacking contingent and with Moore familiar with the 28-year-old having spent time with him at West Bromwich Albion, the answer to their goalscoring woes could be within their ranks.
