The Owls crashed out of the FA Cup in the first round on Tuesday as fellow League One promotion hopefuls Plymouth Argyle came out on top with a 3-0 win at Home Park.


Another poor result has piled more pressure on Moore, who has struggled to get the best out of his squad on a consistent basis this season, further raising questions over whether they will be able to earn promotion back into the Championship with the squad they currently have.



However, Moore has dismissed any worries over the quality of his squad and stressed injuries to key players is the main reason for their current struggles on the pitch.


Asked whether he is worried his squad is essentially not good enough to reach their goals this season, Moore told a press conference: “No, I am happy with the squad.



“When you have got the calibre of players that we have got out, they are big players.


“You are talking half a dozen players and if they are fit they are in the team. Let’s make no mistake about that.



“Any team who loses six of your top players is going to be impacted.


“The biggest thing I am worried about is making sure we stay competitive and stay in contention because when those players do return back, it will obviously make us a stronger team.


“It is very difficult when you lose your better players.”


Moore stressed the need for his team to not dwell on their FA Cup exit and refocus quickly as they have to get right back to League One action at the weekend in which they want to get back to winning ways.


“We have got to get on with it. We can’t cry over spilt milk because it is what it is.


“What we have to do is rally again and go again on Saturday.


“We are disappointed to be out of the FA Cup but we have got a league programme to get back to on Saturday.


“We have to try and get our momentum back in the league.


“The only way you address this is a good performance and right result on Saturday.”


Sheffield Wednesday are back on the road in the league at the weekend and are gearing up to take on 14th placed Accrington Stanley at the Wham Stadium.
