We know how Blackburn feel says Gray

Stuart Gray said his thoughts went back to the early season home game with Millwall as Claude Dielna curled home our stoppage time winner at Blackburn.

Back in August, the Londoners snatched an injury time equaliser at Hillsborough and Gray said today: “We had it done to us against Millwall at home, it’s a horrible feeling and I feel for Gary Bowyer, but I’ll take it. I believe these things will balance themselves out.

“I’m a great believer that the harder you work, it balances itself out for you. Performance-wise we’ve been playing well. I think that’s 20 games and only four defeats so it’s not a bad record.”

Reflecting on the 90 minutes, Gray said: “I thought the first 20 minutes, we totally dominated it. Kieran Lee’s got his goal and we had two or three more opportunities where we got in behind them and then we stopped doing what was getting us our success.

“We allowed Blackburn to come into the game and then there was a 20-minute period in that second half where we’ve had to roll our sleeves up and dig in.”

He added that it is now important Wednesday don’t throw away the advantage of the three points on the road when we take on Wolves at Hillsborough next Saturday.
