Stuart Gray says the Owls must get rid of their stop-start tendencies if they are to have any chance of a top six push this season.

Wednesday saw a three game winning streak in the Championship ended on Saturday with the disappointing defeat to Bolton.

And Gray struggled to hide his frustration at further dropped points on home soil.

“We’re a bit stop-start at the moment,” Gray said.

“It’s disappointing because we felt it was a good opportunity for us with two home games in a row on the back of the way we’ve been playing recently.

“I saw some good play and some good performances but the most important thing is sticking the ball in the back of the net.

“You have to make sure that you don’t get beat in games like that as well. We were let down by a sloppy start.”

Speculation regarding Rhys McCabe’s future with the Owls increased yesterday when the midfielder turned out for Birmingham City U21 in their clash with Coventry.

The Star understands Wednesday allowed the 22-year-old to play for the Blues on a trial basis.

The Scottish midfielder was due to play in the Owls development squad’s scheduled game with Millwall on Monday which fell victim to the weather.

McCabe – who joined from Rangers in the summer of 2012 – is out of contract at the end of the season.

He has made just three substitute appearances for the Owls this season.
