Gray told LUTV: “I am going one each.”

“I hope I am wrong,” added Gray. “I hope we win the game, but I think a point there is a good point.”

Gray has also commented the dismissal of Samuel Saiz against Newport, and told LUTV: “He has let himself down, first of all. He has let his teammates down, the club and the supporters.”
