Darren Moore gives spine-tingling speech in dressing room after Sheffield Wednesday comeback

Darren Moore gives spine-tingling speech in dressing room after Sheffield Wednesday comeback

Barry Bannan gave his own speech as he praised Darren Moore and his backroom staff.

Darren Moore and Barry Bannan shared a heartwarming moment in the dressing room following Sheffield Wednesday's remarkable comeback against Peterborough.

Wednesday trailed 4-0 from the first-leg following their thrashing at the Weston Homes Stadium last week.

But Moore's side produced a sensational performance on Thursday to reach the League One play-off final.

Liam Palmer scored deep, deep into stoppage time to make it 4-4 on aggregate to send the game into extra-time.

Peterborough scored to take the lead, but Callum Paterson levelled in the 112th minute to send the game into a penalty shootout, which Wednesday won 5-3.

After the thrilling match, The Owls boss delivered a spine-tingling speech in the dressing room before club captain Bannan gave his own speech, praising the coaching staff.

Moore said: "Fellas listen. I’m absolutely just so proud of every single one of you.

"We had a bit of adversity in the first game, and we knew we didn’t perform but listen lads, it just goes to show what preparation does.

"We’ve prepared all week the mindset, the mentality and in training I want to say this to you, the belief has been there from day dot, and I can’t commend you all enough in terms of what you just produced out there."

The 49-year-old added: "It’s absolutely incredible, you really deserve it. I’m absolutely delighted, what we’ve had to come through this season.

"Listen boys, we’ve got one more, OK. Enjoy tonight but we’ve got one more, but I’m so proud, lets go!"

Bannan then commented on behalf of the team as he applauded Moore and his backroom staff.

"This last week, what you’ve done to change our mindsets... You and the staff have been unbelievable," he said.

"There were some people who were down and what you told us... the work you and the staff have put in has been unbelievable. So, thank you."

The touching exchange comes after Moore was racially abused following his side's defeat last Friday.

He's clearly appreciated by his players as the club have the chance to return to the Championship.

Wednesday will play either Barnsley or Bolton in the League One play-off final.
