We deserved something from the game

3 May 2014

The Owls ended their 2013/14 campaign with a 2-1 defeat at Ipswich on Saturday but Stuart Gray said his side were good value for at least a point in Suffolk.

An entertaining end of season contest saw the Tractor Boys come out on top, although on chances created, Wednesday deserved a share of the spoils.

He said: “My analyst tells me we had 21 shots on goal and you can’t ask for much more than that away from home.

“Their goalkeeper made a fantastic double save right on half time and if one of those goes in, it might have been a different story.

“When we did score, we deserved it and I thought we would go on and win the game. But Ipswich scored from a free kick and after that we had plenty of possession but couldn’t quite make the breakthrough.”

On the positive side, Gray was pleased with Kieran Lee’s first goal in Wednesday colours. The former Oldham man cancelled out the Ipswich opener by Tommy Smith and Gray said:

“I was really pleased for Kieran because he deserves it. He’s a selfless footballer and a real team player.

“I don’t think he knew how to celebrate, though! But seriously, I think you could see with the way the team reacted and the way the bench reacted how popular a lad he is.

“As I say, It’s just a shame we couldn’t go on and get something out of the game.”

Off the field, Gray confirmed that he will conduct individual meetings with the players at Middlewood Road on Sunday.

With a good number out of contract this summer, key decisions have already been made and the squad will soon learn their fate.

He added: “It’s never a pleasant task but one that is part and parcel of being at a football club.

“There will be players leaving and they will be the first to know before the club make a statement probably around the middle of next week.”
