Stuart Gray was disappointed with Sheffield Wednesday's first-half performance against Wigan - but agreed calling the game off was the right decision.

Hillsborough: Referee Keith Stroud called off proceedings due to a waterlogged p

Wednesday caretaker Gray, in his fourth game in charge following Dave Jones' sacking earlier this month, saw the match abandoned in the 59th minute with his side 1-0 down due to a waterlogged pitch.

Midfielder James McClean gave Wigan the lead with his first goal for the club, taking advantage of a fortunate ricochet off Wednesday defender Roger Johnson before sliding the ball under goalkeeper Damian Martinez.

Gray praised referee Keith Stroud, but admitted his side had clearly been second best.

He said: "I'm totally disappointed with the first-half performance. We got outplayed, bullied, individual errors, decision-making.

"I was happy to get in at half-time only 1-0 down, but for 15 minutes in the second half I thought we bossed it.

"In the end it had to be the right decision. The players' safety is the most important thing.

"Players can't run with the ball, the ball's sticking. Sometimes it's quite amusing for the supporters, but you've got to think of the players' health."

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
