- Owls at halfway point of the season
- Stuart Gray assesses campaign so far
- Must get it right in both boxes
Stuart Gray has assessed the Owls’ first half of the season, with the judgement being that his side could have done better.
Wednesday sit in 13th spot in the Championship, boasting one of the meanest defences in the division to boot.
At the other end, though, only the reverse is true, and Gray said:
“I would say we could do better. I look at games in particular like Millwall when they scored with the last kick of the game and Bolton, where we completely dominated but couldn’t get the goal.
“All in all I would say we could comfortably have another eight to ten points.
“Defensively, we are right up there but we know we have to score more goals.
“It’s the hardest part of the game, putting the ball in the back of the net, and we have to improve in that respect.
“But that’s not just down to the strikers, we attack as a team and defend as a team.”
Next up for the Owls is a trip over the Pennines to Wigan and for now, Gray is focused on the mantra of taking one game at a time.
He added: “It’s only a few weeks since we played Wigan and beat them at Hillsborough and now the challenge is to go to their place and do the same thing.
“They had a good win at Leeds on Boxing Day so their tails will be up but we know what we are capable of.
“We have a very busy fixture list at the moment, we have a big cup-tie coming up at Manchester City, and we want to be giving our supporters something to cheer.”
