One point each about right

4 October 2014

  • Wednesday draw 1-1 with Leeds on Saturday
  • Owls pegged back by Whites leveller
  • Head coach says result was fair

Stuart Gray agreed that a point was the right result following the 1-1 draw with Leeds on Saturday.

That said, the head coach said it could have been all three had the Owls taken their chances in the Yorkshire derby after hitting the front.

Chris Maguire gave Wednesday the lead before Giuseppe Bellusci equalised for the hosts.

Gray said: “We could have won the game because we had chances after we scored and I think had we scored again, that would have killed the game off.

“But I have to be honest and say a draw was the right result. In the first half, we weren’t quite at it and they were the better side.

“That changed in the second half so all things considered, a draw was fair.”

Gray shuffled his pack at half time, introducing Gary Madine for Atdhe Nuhiu, and the former gave a good account of himself in the final third.

Gray explained: “I just felt the ball wasn’t quite sticking up front and Gary did very well in the second half.

“He held the ball up and put himself about.

“I also thought Jeremy Helan did well when he came on, he used his pace well and opened up their defence once or twice.

“It is important to have a strong bench and I think we have seen that this afternoon.”
