Let's go out in style

1 May 2014

With just one game to go until the end of the Championship campaign, Stuart Gray is looking to sign off it style at Portman Road.

The Owls take on Ipswich in Suffolk after a recent blip in form, but the head coach wants the sell-out following from Sheffield heading home happy this weekend.

Gray said: “It’s been disappointing the amount of goals we have conceded recently and that just has to stop.

“You can’t keep having to score four goals to win a game of football. The irony is that we have been finding the net on a regular basis but we have let ourselves down at the other end of the field.

“It would be great to go out with a clean sheet at Ipswich and keep our form in front of goal. We will be going there with a point and a clean sheet and need to build on that and win the game.

“It should be a good game because both sets of players will be relaxed but by the same token, both sets of players will be wanting to win their last game of the season.

“At the end of the day, it’s a long way for our supporters to travel, they have been magnificent this season, and I want to see them going home from the last game with smiles on their faces.”

Gray also revealed that once the season is done and dusted, he will waste no time in putting the building blocks in place with next term in mind.

And to that end, he intends informing the out of contract players of their destiny on Sunday.

He explained: “I don’t want to elongate the process and neither will the players.

“They will be the first to know and I will sit down with them on Sunday and let them know my thinking.

“We have to get things moving because the summer flies by in football.

“There is so much work to be done and when we report back on 1 July, we will be prepared for all the more hard work ahead.”
