Only thing that matters is the win

9 January 2015

  • Owls face Forest on Saturday
  • Stuart Gray began at The City Ground
  • Head coach focused on the win

Stuart Gray heads back to familiar territory this weekend, but the only thing on his mind will be the three points.

The Owls’ head coach kicked off his playing career with Nottingham Forest, going on to make 49 appearances for the Midlanders.

He returns to The City Ground on Saturday, this time on the other side of the white line with Wednesday.

And he told “I have a lot of affection for Nottingham Forest as they were my first club in football.

“I enjoyed my time there. Forest were the champions at the time and I couldn’t have asked for a better start in football

“It’s always nice to go back but the only thing I want out of the day is three points.”

On the fitness front, the Owls are in reasonable shape, with Gray hopeful that Keiren Westwood and Joe Mattock will be available for the Championship clash.

Westwood missed last Saturday’s FA Cup-tie at Manchester City with a calf strain, while Mattock sat out the same game having picked up a groin injury.

Gray added: “Keiren had a light training session and came through OK and we will probably give Joe a fitness test on the day.

“Hopefully they will be available. The more bodies we get out of the treatment room the better.”
