Owls on course

14 January 2014

 

Stuart Gray was pleased with the performance and result against Macclesfield on Tuesday at Hillsborough.

 

The Owls progressed to round four of the FA Cup courtesy of a 4-1 home success which finally put the gallant Silkmen to the sword.

 

Wednesday, though, survived a second half scare when Scott Kay hit the crossbar with the tie locked at 1-1.

 

Gray said: “We did what we had to do and the quality shone through in the end, and credit to the players for that.

 

“They weathered the storm and went on to score three more goals. But I said to them at half time that Macclesfield will have a ten-minute spell when they will throw everything at us – they did so but we overcame that and proved our quality.

 

“That’s 12 goals now in three games at Hillsborough and we’re entertaining the home fans, which is important.

 

“And the pleasing thing tonight was, once again we have spread the goals around, with four different goalscorers.”

 

The Owls will travel to Rochdale on Saturday week in round four and Gray is eagerly anticipating the trip across the Pennines:

 

“Of course, we’re looking forward to it, this is the FA Cup, it comes around once a year and you want to make the best of it that you can.

 

“We will give Rochdale every respect because everyone saw what they can do in the last round when they beat Leeds.

 

“The reward for a win is entering the last 16 and the possibility of a huge game so both sides will be giving it everything they have and respect the traditions of the FA Cup.”
