Foot to the floor

24 April 2014

Stuart Gray says it will be foot to the floor for the Owls on Saturday as they approach their final home game of the season.

Wednesday entertain Bolton looking to banish the Easter Monday collapse against Charlton that saw the hosts’ 2-0 lead rapidly develop into a 3-2 defeat.

And the head coach insists he wants that performance off everyone’s radar as soon as possible.

He said: “Like everybody else, I was hugely disappointed with the way that we allowed Charlton back into the game on Easter Monday.

“I wanted everyone to see that we were completely focused and had no intention of taking our foot off the gas because we were mathematically safe.

“The start we made could hardly have been any better but after that, we allowed our standards to slip and it was a big disappointment to everyone that the game slipped away.

“Make no mistake, I want as many points as possible to finish as high as we can in the table and as far I am concerned, Monday was three points given away.

“We need to turn that around with the right performance against Bolton.”

Gray also revealed that contract talks are on hold until the completion of the campaign on Saturday week at Ipswich.

Continued speculation has yielded a number of media stories but Gray says that discussions will open only when the campaign is concluded.

He said: “There has been no contract offer to anyone as yet. I will be sitting down with the chairman shortly and then we will decide where we go from there.

“One thing is certain and that is that there will be no concrete talks with players until we have played our last game of the season.

“We still have points to play for and my focus is completely on that.”
