Darren Moore seeking Sheffield Wednesday freshness and flexibility as he ponders Huddersfield Town line-up

Darren Moore liked a lot of what he saw from Sheffield Wednesday on Sunday, but that does not mean there will not be changes for the visit of Huddersfield Town.

As Doncaster Rovers Moore was almost fanatical in bis belief in a 4-2-3-1 formation, using the versatility of his players to fit them into the system even when he did not seem to have the personnel available to play it.

Already he has shown himself to be different at Hillsborough, sticking to his preferred shape in his first week in charge, but changing to three at the back for the visit of Norwich City. Although the Championship leaders came from behind to win 2-1, there was huge credit to be taken from working them so hard.

But Moore also though tiredness was a factor in the comeback, and may look to freshen his side up against the Terriers.

“When you reach the latter part of the game, tiredness creeps in,” said Moore of Sunday's defeat. “You try to make one or two changes to get up the pitch but it was such a tight game. It was on a knife edge in terms of the details that made the difference.

“It was probably two lapses in concentration from us in the end but, when they (Norwich) did get in, it was two quality bits of finishing.

“We dust ourselves down and go again.

“Everybody here has seen a team that was playing without fear today against the league leaders, a team that was disciplined off the ball. An then when we broke away with the ball we looked dangerous. It’s about building on that.”

Andre Green and Joost van Aken are back in training, but it remains to be seen if Wednesday will be too soon for them, with 10 more games to be mindful of between now and May 8.

Huddersfield have favoured a back three lately so it might be that Moore sticks to his weekend formation but he is certainly willing to be more flexible in that regard than he was at the Keepmoat Stadium.

“We have different opponents coming, and different systems,” he said. “As and when we see fit to change the system, we’ll change the system - or the personnel.”
