Laws - 'What A Job!'

Laws - 'What A Job!'

Wednesday boss Brian Laws was left delighted with his troops after they came out 3-1 winners against Leicester City at the weekend, but insists the Owls aren't safe just yet.

The three points from the crucial Walkers Stadium clash saw Wednesday leapfrog the Foxes and Southampton going in to the last game of the season, and although they'll now be hot favourites to avoid the drop, the Owls gaffer insists the job is only half done.

'The first thing I said to the players was: 'Don't think we have done it, that's half the job.' We are not taking our eye off the ball at any stage,' Laws told the official Owls' website.

'We trained all week on how we were going to play and now we have to prepare them again for another massive game against Norwich.

'If anybody tells me football is not stressful I think I will have to knock them out. What a game! I said to the players at full time: 'I don't know if I could take much more of that.' It was incredible. We had left ourselves in a position where we needed to win two games to get out of this and this is only half the job, but what a job we have done!'

The Owls have made a bad habit of conceding early goals in recent clashes against Plymouth Arglye and Blackpool, but showed the spirit to come from behind and level, with the same happening on Saturday.

And Laws was full of praise for another fightback from his troops on Saturday.

He continued: 'The start did not surprise me, we have conceded too many early goals but we are one of the most consistent teams in replying to going a goal down. What a way to reply too, it was a great finish by Slusarski for the equaliser.'

We now have 90 minutes to fight like we have never fought before. Leicester was a big game and an even bigger result, but this match will seal our fate and we need to be up for it. UTO!

Good to see the club have "slashed" ticket prices for the norwich match. makes a nice change. The club rewarding the fans. Hopefully therel be a massive attendance and a massive atmosphere. Now i have a massive task to get my tickets back to the ticket office to refund the difference!! haha.

From the Sheffield Star - Enoch's at it again! Derek Geary, the victors' vertically challenged full-back, should have needed step ladders to beat Bristol City's towering centre-forward Enoch Showunmi to the ball but he defied the laws of probability and physics to repel a potentially dangerous attack. "When you've got someone who's barely five foot tall beating a player who's around six foot seven in that type of situation then you know you've got a team who care," enthused a delighted Kevin Blackwell. Or have you just got a **** striker who can't head a ball??????

I believe we will beat Norwich, by 2 or 3, but i think we need to, Southhampton might just turn over the blades, but i can't see leicester winning at Stoke,but it could still be Coventry or Blackpool too, but what a final day in store, can't wait for the match... come on you owls get behind the team...don't worry about the others, if we win we are staying up anyway.

Yeah think it will be another win for Owls sunday Im with you wednesdaydoyle I think 2 or 3-0 to us. Just be great if there was news of take over this week then itcan be a proper party at Hillsborough. Only other good thing then could be if the new buyers keep Mr Laws, Id love to see him get a fair crack of the whip next season hes a top manager !! Up The Owls
