STUART GRAY was delighted that Sheffield Wednesday managed to stop Brighton & Hove Albion from scoring and that his side showed significant improvements from their loss to Ipswich Town.
He said, “We have to keep believing. We had chances in the first half and chances in the second half and I would be concerned if that wasn’t the case.
“Their keeper made three crucial saves and we are all frustrated again. We will keep at it, keep believing and if that means working even harder, then so be it.
“We kept another clean sheet, though, and that’s a boost for Keiren Westwood and the defence.
“I have every confidence in this group of players. I said I was looking for a reaction following what I thought was a very disappointing performance at Ipswich in midweek.
“The improvement I saw today was 100% and we need to take that kind of effort and commitment into the game at Derby next week.”

However, CHRIS HUGHTON admitted his side must be more ruthless in front of goal.
He said, “Generally you’ve got to be creating a few more chances and putting away a percentage of them or you’ve got to have somebody that’s pulling something out of nothing all the time.
“If I look at Derby at the moment, they’ve got someone like Chris Martin, who’s not getting loads of chances but is just putting away a higher percentage of the ones he gets, but I think it will be a team effort that gets us goals.
“The league table doesn’t lie and we know where we are in the league. The only way you can get out of the position we’re in is by winning games and getting enough points, and we have to do that.”
