Gray: We could have scored more goals

Stuart Gray felt Wednesday could have won more comfortably than the 2-0 scoreline at Reading on Saturday.

The Owls head coach was again full of credit for the team’s 100 per cent effort, saying that we created the better chances, but added that we need to make sure we kill teams off when we dominate as we did against Reading

Referring to the decision to play Jose Semedo in the middle of defence alongside Miguel Llera, Gray said we failed to get clearance before kick off to play Cardiff loanee Adedeji Oshilaja and so made the decision to put Semedo at the back, having already pencilled this in as a contingency plan.

He praised loanee striker Benik Afobe for his workrate, power and pace and said that he substituted Rhys McCabe at half time because he felt the midfielder was only a tackle away from a red card.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Stuart Gray, the Wednesday manager, disagreed with Adkins’ verdict on the red card.

“I thought it was the correct decision,” Gray said. “Perhaps we had a bit of luck in the first five minutes, when they missed their two chances, but I thought we dominated after that.

“I’m grateful to Arsenal for letting us have Afobe. He’s got real talent and caused Reading a lot of problems with his pace and power.

“But it’s not really fair to pick out individuals. It was a collective team performance. With a bit better finishing, we could have finished them off earlier.”
