Gray reviews Derby defeat

21 February 2015

Stuart Gray says the Owls deserved something from a thrilling Championship contest at the iPro Stadium.

Wednesday went down 3-2 in the Midlands but only after Derby twice came from behind.

A late penalty settled matters and goalkeeper Keiren Westwood was sent off, which Gray felt was harsh.

He said: “I thought it was similar to the Wayne Rooney one the other night at Preston.

“The referee has a decision to make and I think we’ve been punished twice.

“Whether it’s a penalty or not, Kamil Zayatte was back to cover so I thought it was a yellow card if he was going to be punished.

“It was harsh but then I thought we deserved something from the game.

“We have pushed Derby all the way and they are a very good side who I think will get promoted.

“I’m disappointed because we’ve conceded all three goals from set pieces – two corners and a penalty.

“But we were much better than our last away game at Ipswich and we can travel to Millwall on Tuesday with plenty of encouragement to take from this game today.”
