Same again

18 March 2014

Stuart Gray has hailed QPR as one of the strongest propositions in the Championship but is expecting his side to more than rise to the occasion this evening at Hillsborough.

After a wobble in their season, QPR returned to winning ways with a comfortable 3-0 win over Yeovil on Saturday.

Assessing the R’s squad, the Owls head coach believes it would not look out of place in the Premier League.

But given the Owls’ current form on home soil and impressive performance against Birmingham on Saturday, Gray has said there is nothing for Wednesday to fear.

He said: “You just look at the quality Harry has got to choose from, the ability that they’ve got and the internationals in his team.

“They’ve got quality right throughout the squad but we were disappointed not to come away with something from Loftus Road on the opening day.

“I know with the group of players that I’ve got that, yes we will respect them but we won’t be frightened of them.

“We’ll be in their faces, we’ll be closing them down and asking them questions of how good they are.

“We’ve had a fantastic performance against Birmingham on Saturday and I want a repeat of that against QPR and then for us to go to Doncaster and get a result as well.”

The comfortable 4-1 win over Birmingham saw the Owls move 13 points clear of the drop zone and just four points shy of the top half of the division.

With 11 games left of the campaign, Gray’s aim is to gather as many of the 33 points up for grabs as possible, adding:

“I think Harry has got a squad of players that could still do a job in the Premier League, so this will be a good test for us and it’s one we’re looking forward to.

“We have to make sure we come out on top in our battles all over the field but I’ve got great belief we can result.”
