Gaffer Pays Tribute To Whole Squad Ahead Of Wembley Clash

21 May 2015

Manager Simon Grayson has some tough decisions on his hands when it comes to selecting his match day squad on Sunday to face Swindon Town at Wembley on Sunday.

Strength in depth has been a vital part of the season so far, with a number of players contributing to the Club's current position, and the gaffer is full of praise for every member of his squad going into the final game of the 2014/15 campaign. 

"It's going to be a real difficult decision, because there are going to be some really, really disappointed players that have played a big part in the season. 

"Eleven players are going to be ecstatic that they are going to be going out at Wembley, seven will be equally happy because they are still going to be a part of it then probably another seven or eight players that are going to be left out of the 18 and sat in the stands.

"All these lads have contributed, as we keep mentioning all season, that they have played their parts in a massive, massive way and I can't speak highly enough of the group of players. 

"I know I've mentioned it many times but I do genuinely believe that this is the best group of players I've worked with, in terms of how they conduct themselves, how they use their application, the character they've got and I don't use those words lightly. 

"That's why it's going to be really difficult for myself to make these decisions I'm going to make, but I have to make the decisions that are going to be best for the football club and hopefully try and win the match. 

"That's why I'm the manager and hopefully the decisions that you make are the right ones for the Club and the individuals accept that you are doing the best for the Club."
