Gray: We should have played to whistle

Stuart Gray said Wednesday paid the penalty for not playing to the whistle after seeing us pegged back in another disappointing home display against Fulham.

Stevie May’s flicked header on 54 minutes from Lewis McGugan’s cross looked as though it might have been enough to give us the three points after a largely lifeless first half.

However, Fulham snatched an equaliser when Matt Smith turned the ball home from close range with 15 minutes left, as our defenders appealed for a free kick as they felt a Fulham attacker dived in the build-up.

Gray said: “I was disappointed the ref didn’t give a free-kick for simulation for us but you have to keep playing to the whistle.”

Wednesday might have grabbed a second goal in a short spell of pressure after our opener while Fulham’s only real threat came after their equaliser.

However, overall it was once again poor entertainment for the 22,000 crowd, with Wednesday left regretting that defensive lapse.

Gray added that the game was “not one for the purist” and said we didn’t capitalise after going ahead.
