Gray pleased to have bounced back after Doncaster defeat

Stuart Gray praised Wednesday’s never-say-die attitude which saw them bounce back from the Doncaster defeat with victory over Brighton.

After watching Leon Best clinch an injury-time win, Gray said: “We kept going and got our rewards and I was pleased for Leon as he was distraught on Saturday when he thought he should have put us in front at Doncaster.

“After the disappointment of that game I just felt we had to get a result tonight – that meant not getting beaten – and the pleasing thing was then getting all three points.”

Gray said he understood the frustration of the home crowd at times as Wednesday failed to reproduce the level of football of the last two Hillsborough games. He said the side stopped the ball too much, rather than building flowing moves, but also pointed to the fact that Brighton are a good side and one that is pushing for the play-offs.

The head coach scoffed at the thought that Wednesday might now be safe on 48 points, saying: “I haven’t looked at the table yet and we may have moved up after the win. However, we will keep going and I don’t want any complacency.”
