Bring our best form to Hillsborough

14 October 2014

  • Stuart Gray aiming for positive home run
  • Head coach stresses importance of turning draws into wins
  • Owls face Watford, Brentford and Norwich in a week

The Owls have enjoyed a positive start to the campaign and will head into the clash with Watford on Saturday two points shy of the play-off spots.

Wednesday’s impressive away form has yielded 11 of the Owls’ 17 points this season and head coach Stuart Gray wants to bring that form to Hillsborough.

Over the course of the next few weeks, there will be plenty of opportunity for the Owls on home soil, starting with Watford on Saturday and then Norwich one week later.

Gray said: “We’re looking forward to playing those games at home in front of our own fans and giving them something to cheer about.

“We have picked up several good results away from home but any team that wants to be successful have to get their home form right.

“We haven’t got our home form going which is disappointing and we need to improve on that.”

Wednesday will be put to the test this month with games against the high-flying Hornets and Canaries, and a trip to Brentford sandwiched in between.

“Our away form has been excellent but we need to start turning draws into wins at Hillsborough,” Gray continued.

“We probably haven’t got as many points as our performances have deserved and I’m talking about the Forest and Millwall games in particular.

“It’s up to the players to get the crowd up for it.

“The more we’ve got the ball around the 18-yard box and we’re getting shots and crosses away, the more the crowd will appreciate it. The players know what they have to do.”
