Gray hails McGugan impact

25 February 2015

With two goals in two games, Owls head coach Stuart Gray has hailed the impact of Lewis McGugan.

The midfielder produced an accomplished display in Tuesday’s win over Millwall and opened the scoring with a delightful finish to round off a flowing move upfield.

The goal against the Lions was his second for Wednesday in as many games, having also hit the target against Derby and Gray is hoping the loanee can now kick on.

He said: “Lewis has got a fantastic CV, he’s a goalscoring midfielder and his timing of runs into the box is exactly what you want.

“I’ve watched his goal back, he lets the ball roll across his body, loses the defender and it’s a fantastic piece of skill.

“That’s two goals in two games and hopefully he can go on a run now because, like I say, his CV shows over 40 goals from midfield. He breaks into the box and can shoot with both feet.”

But Gray was also quick to praise the team’s performance at The Den for their grit and determination to weather an early storm before asserting their dominance.

He added: “It wasn’t just about Lewis, as a team we dug in for 20 minutes and then we built on that.

“I thought we thoroughly deserved the win with our second half performance.

“I’m also pleased for Atdhe Nuhiu and Stevie May because they took their goals very well.”
