Point apiece the right result

30 September 2014

  • Owls held by Ipswich at Hillsborough
  • Two goals chalked off for Wednesday
  • But Stuart Gray says draw was fair result

Stuart Gray felt a point apiece was a fair result following the 1-1 draw with Ipswich on Tuesday.

Atdhe Nuhiu’s early strike was cancelled out by Jonny Williams after the break and although Wednesday had two goals ruled out, Gray said neither side truly merited all three points:

“It was a scrappy game and Ipswich play to their strengths. They can play it across the back and then hit the front three, who are all big lads.

“That’s the way they are set up to play and I switched things around but it was frustrating.

“But credit to our players, they have given everything and I think a draw was about the right result.”

Gray was pleased with the early goal scored by Nuhiu as a training ground routine paid dividends.

The big man notched his fifth strike of the season and the head coach believes it could have been more.

He added: “I was pleased for Atdhe to score so early in the game.

“We have been working on set pieces so it’s always nice to see one come good.

“I would have to see his disallowed goal again because it was impossible to tell from my angle.

“It was a fantastic delivery from Jacques Maghoma, as it was for the goal, but Atdhe’s goal was ruled out.

“The linesman put his flag up so he obviously thought it was offside.

“For the first disallowed goal, I think the referee has blown for Kamil climbing on Chambers but as I say, I would have to look back at it again.”
