Sheffield Wednesday have one clear objective for the remainder of the season, with Darren Moore tasked with keeping the Owls in the Championship.

A pre-season point deduction presented an uphill battle for the Owls, with Moore now arriving as the club’s third permanent boss this season with the brief of avoiding relegation.

It’s a far cry from what the club’s aim was back in 2015/16, when Carlos Carvalhal had Hillsborough dreaming of promotion back into the Premier League.

Play-off football was achieved again the season after, but Huddersfield Town beat Carvalhal’s side in the play-off semi-finals.
