The strong bond and togetherness in the Sheffield Wednesday squad is driving the team up the Championship table, according to head coach Stuart Gray.

Second-half strikes by Stevie May and Jeremy Helan helped the Owls secure a 2-0 win at Birmingham City on Tuesday. Victory moved Gray’s charges up to seventh position in the standings.

“The team spirit in the dressing room is unbelievable,” said the Wednesday chief. “That goes a long way in this league.

“I’ve got no sulkers at the moment when players are not in the team.”

Right now, Gray admits he does not pay much attention to the league table. He joked: “I will probably look at it around April!”

He said he was delighted the team recorded their sixth clean sheet of the campaign in the triumph at St Andrew’s.

“We’ve had a decent start,” acknowledged Gray, who hopes Hallam Hope will be fit for the visit of Reading. “But I’m greedy because we should have beaten Millwall, should have got something out of the Forest game and ought to have beaten Bolton.”
