Wednesday have lost only one of their last 11 league games since former Northampton boss Gray, 52, joined Owls manager Dave Jones's backroom staff in mid-December.

Both Jones and Owls chairman Milan Mandaric told a Wednesday fans' forum that Gray was an integral part of the club's coaching team and wanted him to continue beyond the current campaign.

Jones said: "Stuart is happy in what he is doing. He's a very good coach.

"You don't just build a team on the field, it's important to build one off it.

"He came probably at the right time. He brought experience and a different approach.

"I'm sure if he still enjoys it, at the end of the season we'll be sitting down and speaking to him. He's helped us along."

Mandaric added: "Our manager will have support to keep Stuart. He is a tremendous addition."

Wednesday are unbeaten in their last seven league matches and sit five points clear of the relegation zone.

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
