Laws Disappointed With A Point

Laws Disappointed With A Point

The Blades may have been expected to bag all three points with eased against a makeshift Wednesday side, but Owls boss Brian Laws was still disappointed his men didn't bag all three points.

Laws went in to the game with a huge selection headache in light of the current injury crisis at S6, but came within a whisker of giving Wednesday the double over their red and white rivals.

Adam Bolder put Wednesday in to a 2-0 advantage with goals either side of half-time, but Wednesday were pegged back with a Richard Wood own goal and a superb James Beattie free-kick.

Laws praised the Owls for their 'impressive' performance but was left with disappointment after the clash rather than celebrating three points.

'I think like our supporters I was dreaming of the double over Sheffield United and I would like to be feeling elation standing here instead of disappointment,' he told the official SWFC website.

'We deserved more from that game but didn't get it, although it was an excellent performance. We caused them all kinds of problems.'

Wednesday would have surely taken a point against their in-form rivals before the match, and the point lifts them further away from the drop zone having move up a place above Leicester City.

Laws added: 'It's just mind-boggling to think where we are in the table when we are capable of producing performances like that.

'We know that United have quality but we surprised them again and showed what we are capable of. But goals change games and their first goal gave them the lift they needed.'

if there is a takeover mr laws and you survive it learn defenders how to defend or better still buy some. but the main reason for me why we are in this position is poor midfielders
