Soldiers and artists

5 February 2015

Owls head coach Stuart Gray is pleased with the balance of the squad.

Wednesday added six players in the latest transfer window, with each bringing a wide range of attributes to the group.

Gray likened the make-up of the squad to soldiers and artists and explained:

“It’s about getting the right balance in your team. You’ve got to have a few soldiers that will win the ball and do the ugly side of the game.

“But you also need your flair players. Players like Jose Semedo can sometimes go unnoticed for the work they do but you need those players in your team.

“You look at the other midfielders in the dressing room and see the likes of Lewis McGugan in that area who can create and hopefully go and get a goal for us.”

A pleasing point for Gray is the added options across the park with fixtures coming thick and fast over the coming weeks.

“I’ve had 24 players out there this morning, and that’s important because we play Saturday, Tuesday and Saturday,” he added.

“It's a team game and we may have to rotate in spells like this.

“We've got Semedo struggling with injury and that’s disappointing because he has probably been our most consistent player in the last few weeks.

“But the most important thing on Saturday is that whatever eleven I put out there will give it a right good go.”
