Sheffield Wednesday's Gray wants to enter unknown territory

Sheffield Wednesday manager Stuart Gray will remind his players they will achieve something that has so far eluded him if they beat Charlton today to reach the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.

Gray, 53, whose playing career with Nottingham Forest, Barnsley, Aston Villa and Southampton spanned 14 years, has never made it to the last eight of the competition.

Only two members of his current squad have gone beyond the fifth round and Gray believes victory at this stage will allow them to start dreaming of an unlikely Wembley final.

"It's a challenge," said Gray.

"Chris Powell will have Charlton well organised and they'll have 11 players who are thinking about the quarter-final of the FA Cup, a bit like our lads."
