ALEX MOWATT PRE-WYCOMBE

8 December 2020

The Reds' captain spoke to the press ahead of Wednesday night's clash with Wycombe Wanderers.

Recently promoted to the Sky Bet Championship and currently in decent nick after what was a horrendous start to life in the second tier, the Chairboys visit Oakwell on Wednesday in a 7.45pm kick-off. 

We only need to go back to 2019 for the last time we met Gareth Ainsworth's side, and on both occasions during that 2018/19 promotion campaign, the men from High Wycombe gave the Reds a real challenge.

Mowatt remembers that well, telling us: "When we were in League One we played them twice and at their place especially, I think it was a really tough game and we're expecting the same tomorrow.

"They are well-drilled, organised and everyone knows their roles. From watching highlights they create a lot of chances as well. They have been creating five or six chances per game."

ISMAËL PRE-WYCOMBE

8 December 2020

It's been a bit of a break since the Reds' last outing. 

Defeated in front of the Sky Sports cameras last Friday night, Mowatt believes the players have had chance to reset their bodies and minds ahead of another hectic period heading into the New Year.

"We had a few days off after the Bournemouth game." Mowatt explained.

"The gaffer said to rest and recover, have some time with your family. With two games a week it is hectic but it's been good so far and if you lose a game you get another chance soon to put it right.

"You play a game, then work on recovery and then shape for the next game. We don't do a lot of high intensity training now. I prefer games to training but I like training with intensity and you can't do that with these midweek games."

WATCH REDS VS WYCOMBE

7 December 2020

One of the main talking points in football over the weekend was the return to fans at southern stadia. And with that came some club's fans booing their players taking the knee pre-match.

The Reds' skipper says his side will continue to say no to racism, coming together in the fight against prejudice and discrimination.

"Before each game we come together as captains of each team, with the officials and we say we want to take the knee. 

"I think we've done that in pretty much every game so that shows what we are about as a club. 

"We're diverse as a club and we'll continue to take a knee and show what we are about."
