Breaking News ! Peterborough United chairman Darragh MacAnthony has backed Sheffield Wednesday to challenge for the League One title next season. The Owls went down from the Championship after drawing 3-3 at Derby County on the final day of the season. Manager Darren Moore made a welcome return to the dug-out at Pride Park following a period of absence from the club after suffering pneumonia triggered by his contraction of Covid-19. But Moore, who missed seven out of their last nine fixtures, was unable to inspire Wednesday to the victory they needed to stay up. It means the Owls will line up in the third tier of English football for the first time in nine years. Speaking on his Hard Truth Podcast, MacAnthony, whose Posh side secured automatic promotion out of League One this season, said: "I think if Darren Moore hadn't got ill with Covid, I think Sheffield Wednesday would have stayed up. I do rate him [Moore] as a manager. I think he's a brilliant manager. "I think what he's really good at is getting good loans from Premier League clubs. He did it with Doncaster and they were flying. "My tip would be don't interfere and leave him to do what he is good at. Give him the support to recruit. "The fans will be back and they are going to be a monstrous club in League One. "I'm sure they have got still some strengths left there.

. "If you get the opportunity to clear the decks and freshen things up with a fresh new manager, I'm pretty certain they are going to be one of the three teams promoted out of League One next year. "Sheffield Wednesday are a Premier League club...don't be surprised if they have a hell of a season. They are going to be challenging to win the league."

Wednesday have a clutch of players out-of-contract and are expected to release their retained list this week. MacAnthony said: "Good news because if you go down with 20 players and they are all contracted and on big wages, it's a messy summer. If you go down with 10 or 12 players and get rid of three or four, then you can go out and recruit 12 or 13 new players. You can reset everything. "That means they are in really good shape."
