Right in both boxes

26 August 2014

  • Owls triumphant in Capital One Cup
  • Premiership Burnley beaten at Turf Moor
  • Stuart Gray says Wednesday good for the win

Getting it right at both ends of the field was key to the Owls’ passage into the third round of the Capital One Cup according to Stuart Gray.

The former Burnley coach and caretaker manager returned to his old stamping ground and left with a win that he says Wednesday fully deserved:

“We got it right in both boxes tonight and when you do that, you have a chance.

“The defence was strong and credit to Gary Madine up top because he held the ball up and brought others into play.

“We were good value for the win and I’m delighted for the players because they have done so well at a Premier League side.

“We knew it would be a good test and I told them to go out there and impose themselves on Burnley because we are a good side too.”

The Owls now head into the weekend clash with Nottingham Forest in the Championship having posted one of their most impressive starts to a season in years.

And Gray says his players deserve all the credit for the way in which they have conducted themselves, on and off the pitch:

“The players have had a great start and credit to them because they have put the hard work in.

“They are giving everything, there is a fantastic spirit around the place and they deserve the plaudits.

“The next game is a tough one, it’s live on television and we should have a cracking atmosphere at Hillsborough.

“But we’re looking forward to it and we want to keep the run going because winning breeds confidence.”
