Stuart Gray has vowed to stand by striker Stevie May despite his struggles in front of goal for the Owls.

May was particularly guilty of wasting chances in last weekend’s frustrating defeat to Wolves at Hillsborough.

But Gray insists he still believes in May and thinks the goals will come soon enough.

“You just have to keep believing him,” Gray said.

“We’ve created chances for him and he’s created chances for himself but the hardest part of football is scoring goals.

“Hopefully he’ll get one chance on Saturday and stick it in the back of the net.”

The Wednesday head coach said he sat May down and went through a number of his missed chances before running drills on the training pitch.

And while pleased with the Scottish forward’s performances at Middlewood Road, Gray says the burden is on him to replicate at Fulham this weekend.

He said: “Forwards have to know how to move on from a game like that.

“We had a look at the chances we created and corrected it out on the training ground.

“But the most important thing is doing it on Saturday at 3pm.

“I was disappointed for him but we were creating chances, which is a positive.”
