Laws Tops Table

Laws Tops Table

Wednesday boss Brian Laws is the new leader of the League Managers' Association Performance Table for the second quarter following the 2-1 victory over Norwich City at the weekend.

Laws replaces former Owl John Sheridan at the top of the table after helping rejuvinate Wednesday to three successive victories which sees them climb up to 13th in the league ladder - just three points off the play-off positions.

His impressive record at Scunthorpe United put him at the top end of the table before the impressive victory at Carrow Road saw him take top spot for the first time in the second quarter - narrowly in front of Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez in second and Nottingham Forest boss Colin Caldewood in third.

Owls boss Laws is now up one place from fifth to fourth in the seasonal table while Sir Alex Ferguson currently leads the way after stretching his lead at the top to eight points over Walsall`s Richard Money with Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho a further six points behind in third.

Laws has carried on from the hard work by Sean McAuley by tkaing the Owls to four wins from his opening six games in charge with victories over Norwich City, Leicester, Ipswich Town and West Brom with a point against former leaders Cardiff City and a defeat with nine-men against Coventry City.

He'll be pitting his wits against Steve Bruce and his in-form Birmingham City side at Hillsborough on Saturday (kick-off 3pm) as he looks to continue the Owls' form over the hectic Christmas period.
