Home improvements

14 April 2015

While Wednesday have an away record that compares favourably with the teams at the top in the Championship, Stuart Gray is keen to see improvements back at base.

A quick glance at the statistics shows a slight improvement at Hillsborough would see the club potentially challenging much higher up the division.

Wednesday have drawn more games than any other side in the second tier at home (11 in total) and Gray has rued missed opportunities in S6 to mount a sustained play-off push.

Ahead of tonight’s clash with Brentford, Gray said: “We’re just as disappointed as the supporters and we feel their frustrations.

“We’re at a stage where we can’t get that second goal to kill teams off and that has been our Achilles heel.

“We haven’t been able to get that second goal or sometimes the first at 0-0.

“We have got to put that ball over the line. At the moment we aren’t getting it right in both boxes.

“The manner in which we have conceded goals has been disappointing but we need to take the pressure off the back four and Westwood by converting chances.”

With a place in the play-offs at stake for Brentford, in one of the most hotly contested Championship promotion battles in recent history, Gray believes his side must get it right in all areas to post three points.

He added: “We have got to keep believing and I believe in these players. We have got a good game against Brentford coming up and then Bournemouth at the weekend.

“Nobody is running away with this division and everybody keeps going right until the end and that’s the honesty of the Championship.

“But for us, our home form has not been good enough and that’s an area we need to improve on. The be all and end all is the fans want to see wins.”
