Laws Hopes For Second Half Repeat

Laws Hopes For Second Half Repeat

Owls boss Brian Laws is hoping his troops learn from paying for their slow starts to matches and carry the form from Saturday's second half showing into future games.

Wednesday again trailed by a goal going into the second half against Southampton, for the second successive week, but came back to improve in the second 45 and take a share of the spoils.

And although Laws was pleased with the second half showing, he's hoping his men can carry the second 45 minutes for the 90 for the rest of the season.

'A few harsh words had to be said at half time because we do seem to have started slowly the last couple of games,' Laws told the official SWFC website.

'We allowed them to dictate play in the first half and gave them the freedom of the park.

'Southampton have a good bunch of players there; very young and enthusiastic. In the first half they were passing it as if they were Brazil but we were allowing them to do that and after half time we stepped up ten yards from the back and started to cause them problems.'

He continued: 'The second half shows that we are not going to melt. Previously when we were away from home and conceded a goal we were almost like a pack of cards about to fall but we are not like that any more and I am pleased to see that. If we can maintain that level of commitment and performance we can go a long way,'

Wednesday's first test will be when Q.P.R. make the trip to Hillsborough on Tuesday night, kick-off 7.45pm.

We all know we can only play for one half. When was the last time we played really well for 90 minutes?
will it ever happen
