Moore: great team performance

10 January 2021

Darren Moore says his side produced a solid performance to beat Sky Bet Championship side Blackburn Rovers in the Emirates FA Cup third round.

Rovers ran out 1-0 winners at Ewood Park and kept Blackburn at bay despite some late chances for the home side. 

He said: “We’re really pleased to come here and put a performance in like that to get into the FA Cup fourth round. 

“We’ve had a while without a game and had to shuffle the pack a little bit, so that makes the victory more pleasing. 

“We had a bit more stamina compared to the game against them in August, we managed to keep our levels high for the whole game.” 

Taylor Richards’ first-half goal booked Rovers’ place in the fourth round, and Moore was impressed with how the Brighton loanee finished his opportunity. 

He added: “Taylor showed what he can do when he’s near the opposition goal, he’s very different to the other midfielders at the club. 

“The big thing for us is keeping him fit, he’s starting to string games together now which is a big thing for him. 

“He took his goal really well and showed some composure when he got into a good area, and luckily for us it found the back of the net.”
