Below our best

22 March 2014

Stuart Gray was equally frustrated and disappointed following the 1-0 defeat at Doncaster on Saturday.

The Owls’ head coach saw his side go down to a Chris Brown goal at The Keepmoat Stadium but insisted his side would have taken all three points had they taken chances before Rovers converted.
Gray said: “I’m annoyed because we are better than that.

“I’m frustrated as well because we had a great chance to score in the first half, and others, but didn’t take it.

“If you take your chances you win games and I’m sure, with the way we were playing, I would be talking here about three points instead of no points.

“Doncaster had one real chance in the first half and although we thought the lad Brown was offside, they took it.

“For us, we played so well against a very good QPR side in midweek and maybe today was just a game too far.

“Doncaster didn’t have a game in midweek and I think it showed at times.

“I couldn’t fault the effort or the commitment of the players but I think the quality wasn’t quite there.”

On a more positive note, Gray is pleased the Owls are presented with a quickfire chance to get back to winning ways:

He added: “The good thing is that we play Brighton on Tuesday on our own patch where we have been so impressive recently.

“That’s one of the benefits of having a packed schedule, you get the chance to put things right very quickly.

“We were backed by a packed away end today and we really wanted to put on a show for them but it wasn’t to be.”
