Gray explains 'most important' target for Sheffield Wednesday

Sheffield Wednesday manager Stuart Gray wants his side to get back to being tough to play against.

Stuart Gray says that Sheffield Wednesday must get back to being tough to play against in the near future.

The Owls started the season brilliantly but have struggled more recently, and Gray wants them to make it difficult for their opponents from now on.

Wednesday were beaten 3-0 by Watford at the weekend and Gray clearly felt that the Hornets found it too easy to play against his side.

“The most important thing for me, though, is getting back to being tough to play against," he said to the club's official site.

“Our results away from home have been decent but I’m always a believer that you are only as good as your last game and that wasn’t good enough. I think our away success has come from the fact we have started well from the first minute."

Wedesday travel to Griffin Park tonight to face a Brentford side who have done well since making the step-up to the Championship.

The Bees were League One's runners-up last season, but they had a very productive summer and carry a lot of threat.

It is a game which Gray is expecting to be a test of his side's ability, too, as they look to get back to winning ways.

“Brentford are hardworking and this is a difficult place to go," he said. “They close you down and are in your face all the time and will make life difficult for us."
