Everything but the goal at Bolton

13 September 2014

  • Owls draw 0-0 at Bolton on Saturday
  • Wednesday dominate but fall short in final third
  • 24 goal attempts for Stuart Gray's side

Stuart Gray lamented his side’s one point at The Macron Stadium when the head coach insisted it should have been all three.

Wednesday dominated against Bolton from start to finish, creating a raft of chances but failing with the all-important final touch.

Gray said: “It’s beyond me how we haven’t won that one and I hope we don’t come to regret it.

“We should have had a point against Forest, all three against Millwall and now all three today.

“Credit to the players in terms of the performance but as I’ve just said to them in there they have to put teams away when they are so much on top.”

Gray faced a selection dilemma with either Kamil Zayatte or Claude Dielna stepping in for the suspended Glenn Loovens.

Zayatte got the nod, based largely on his sterling display at Burnley in the Capital One Cup.

Gray explained: “I thought Kamil was outstanding at Burnley.

“He was on international duty in midweek and I had a long conversation with him on Friday.

“I felt it was the right call to play him because he was outstanding again today alongside Tom Lees, who has not put a foot wrong since we signed him.

“What we are doing is trying to create competition all over the park and make it harder for those who are not playing to play.

“That means we are playing well as we have done today when we have done everything but score the goal.”
