Sheffield Wednesday latest news: Darren Moore could be sacked if Owls finish outside the top six

Sheffield Wednesday boss Darren Moore delivers encouraging injury update on ace

Carlton Palmer believes that Sheffield Wednesday supporters will demand for Darren Moore to be sacked unless he guides the club into the top six.

It’s been an up and down season for the Owls, although victory against Accrington Stanley tomorrow will be enough to see the Yorkshire giants into play-offs for the first time since November.

What’s the latest news involving Sheffield Wednesday?

Wednesday might have seen their four-game winning run end against Rotherham on Sunday, but Moore’s side are still well-placed to claim a play-off place.

Ahead of their meeting with Accrington, the Owls are only one point behind sixth-place Oxford and only seven behind second-place Wigan, although their games in hand make an automatic promotion push extremely unlikely.

But Sheffield Wednesday are playing League One football for the first time for ten years and were amongst the favourites to finish inside the top-two before the season got underway.

Therefore, Palmer reckons that the Hillsborough faithful will not accept anything less than at worst Wednesday finishing in the top six.

What did Palmer say about Moore?

He told GIVEMESPORT: “Darren’s future will be dictated by the supporters, not by the chairman. I don’t think the supporters will accept if Sheffield Wednesday finish outside the play-offs.

“If they go to the play-offs and they just miss out on going up, then they will look at that and give him the start of next season, but if they miss out, the supporters will dictate that the chairman has to bring a new manager in.”

Would Moore deserved to be sacked if Wednesday miss out on the play-offs?

As mentioned above, when they were relegated from the Championship last season, they quickly emerged as title favourites, let alone top six challengers.

Therefore, if Moore doesn’t at least deliver a play-off place, he wouldn’t have done enough to warrant a second full season in the Hillsborough dugout.

Wednesday are one of the biggest sides in the third-tier, and while League One is arguably as competitive as ever with Sunderland, Wigan, Portsmouth, and Rotherham all battling it out for promotion, Moore has the likes of Josh Windass, Barry Bannan, Lee Gregory, and Sadio Berahino at his disposal, four players who are all good enough to still play in the Championship, meaning they’re definitely underachieving.
