"You're doing the hard bit which is creating the chances.

"Keep getting in there.

"And I'm sure we can do that in the next game which is Peterborough.

"We have to maintain that. We can't come off that.

"It's the same message that I said to them in the dressing room.

"You have to work through this moment. This is probably our moment that we have to work through.

"By working through it, you stick together and keep that momentum.

"That is the message I put to the boys."

On the Accrington result, Moore said he was pleased to see something that had been worked on in training pay off as Jon Taylor latched onto a through ball to score.

"The game plan was to try to get Tayls in behind them, which he was doing and then to see him score a good goad was great because we worked on that in training,” he said.
