Laws Praises 'Magnificent' Owls

Laws Praises 'Magnificent' Owls

Wednesday boss Brian Laws was full of praise for his makeshift team as they overcame Watford 2-0 thanks to goals from Marcus Tudgay and Tommy Spurr.

On top of the current injury worries at Hillsborough, Laws was left without centre-back Mark Beevers for the visit of the Hornets - who'd made an impressive start to the season despite their off-the-field problems.

And the Owls boss was delighted at the way his players responded to the new-look formation in dealing with the Watford danger.

He told the official SWFC website: 'I am absolutely elated with the performance and the result, it was thoroughly deserved and we secured a clean sheet. It was magnificent from the players and a very professional performance.

'We didn't allow Watford to get any grip in the game so I must say 'well done' to the players.'

And Watford boss Aidy Boothroyd also admitted the Owls deserved all they got, telling the Sheffield Star: 'We were well beaten.

'Sometimes with international breaks you're delighted when you keep all your players together, as we did. Next time I think I'll send them all off somewhere!

'You can't take anything away from Wednesday. They outfought us in every department, which is unlike us, but you have to give credit where credit's due.'

Good start to the season. when we get a fully fit squad we should be pushing for a play-off place at least.

credit where credit is due, but come on with the 'going up' comments and 'playoff' hopes. laws is doing a great job!! warnock style.

Bladesforlife, I agree. It is premature at the moment. If this was the last match, then United would have as much chance as Wednesday. And Laws is doing a great job, considering the injuries we have.

yeh laws is doing wonders with the resources he has to manage with. you lot seem to have the 'never say die attitude' i think you may achieve midtable this season which to be honnest considering last season and your current squad of players would be a massive achievement.

Damning us with feint praise again BFL. I just love the idea of Wednesday v Blunts playoff final. Ok a little bit of a dream but if you can't dream what's the point?
