Gray Reflects On Owls Point

3 February 2016

Andre Gray is hoping the 1-1 draw at Hillsborough will prove to be a ‘good point’ come the end of the Sky Bet Championship campaign.

Gray gave the Clarets a dream start when he netted his 18th goal of the season, converting from a Sam Vokes cross after three minutes.

But despite a valuable point on the road, Gray was disappointed they didn’t hang on to secure all three against an in-form Sheffield Wednesday.

He said: "Come the end of the season, we'll look at where we are and hopefully we can say it's a good point but we're disappointed.

"I think we started the game really well, it was just our final ball in the first-half that was letting us down to create clear-cut chances.

"I still think we could have done better with the goal, and got the win but we weren't at it. Everyone has admitted that in the dressing room but we've got to take the positives.

"They've spent a lot of money and you can look throughout their team and see the quality they've got. It was always going to be tough but we ground it out in the end."

The 24-year-old’s goal against the Owls moves his ahead of Danny Ings at the same stage in the 2013/14 season.

And in typically modest fashion, Gray says his target is simply to score in every game to try and help the team.

"Vokesy has had a great touch and put a great ball in the box but it was impossible to miss really.

"I never set any long-term targets, I've always said I just always want to score in the next game and hopefully help get us promoted.

“The next one is Hull City so hopefully I can score in that one and help us get the three points.

“Whatever the result is against Hull, they’ll still be a long way to go so we need to keep pushing on, not drop points and see where that takes us.”
