SHEFFIELD Wednesday boss Darren Moore is expecting “an open game” when Wanderers head to Hillsborough on Saturday afternoon.

Wanderers are seventh in the league table and could climb into the play-offs with a win against the Owls.

Meanwhile, Moore’s men sit 12th in the league table after taking 15 points from their opening 10 matches back in League One.

"They are playing free-flowing football,” said the Wednesday boss. “They are a committed team. They have started the season quite strong.

“Their confidence is high and why shouldn't it be? I expect an open game where they will play their style and system."

Moore – who took charge at Hillsborough back in March - has experience in League One from his time at Doncaster.

However, the Wednesday boss admits this season is a different challenge due to the quality throughout the division.

He added: "League One is like no other season - there are probably eight or nine teams who have been in the Premier League. We are under no illusions at how difficult it is.

"The division comes with so many hurdles and you have got to cope with the demand. You try and focus on yourself and find that consistency going forwards.

“The group is getting in a better place. We have had spells in games where we have had 20 to 30 minutes of blistering football and not quite taken full advantage of it.

“We have to keep working on that consistent level of approach. We have got new players and there are always combinations that need to develop."
