Sheffield Wednesday boss Gray comments on McGugan's first training session

Sheffield Wednesday boss Stuart Gray says new loanee Lewis McGugan has settled in immediately.

Sheffield Wednesday manager Stuart Gray says he is delighted with new boy Lewis McGugan.

The midfielder signed on Wednesday on loan, and is eligible to feature this weekend away to Huddersfield Town. 

Gray told his press conference that McGugan has settled in instantly.

He told BBC Sheffield: "He's shown his class, some of the goals he's scored in training already this morning, and hopefully he can carry that on.

"I'll only bring players into the football club who re better than what we've got. Not being disrespectful to our midfield players but Lewis, I've followed his career since he was a boy at Forest, he just scores goals on a regular basis.

"He picked out two or three passes today and scored a couple of goals. He's what we needed really and it's given everybody a lift as well."

The Owls have scored just 12 goals in 17 matches so far this season, the second lowest total in the Championship, one more than Blackpool.

Gra added that he had hoped to sign McGugan a couple of weeks earlier, but Watford had needed to keep him at that time.
