Manager's Musings: Post-Brum

Manager's Musings: Post-Brum

Wednesday boss Brian Laws revealed Saturday's 3-0 home defeat to league leaders Birmingham City more than flattered Steve Bruce's men - and was the 'biggest travesty' he's ever seen in his life.

The Owls more than matched the Blues throughout the match and created enough chances to win the game themselves - but the league leaders finishing proved decisive as all three of their attempts on target ended up in the back of Mark Crossley's (and Lee Bullen's!) goal.

Laws said: 'It's the biggest travesty I've ever seen in my life. We were the better side and lost. We really took the game to them and I thought we were excellent. I can't understand how we haven't scored.'

Before the match Laws insisted the match was a 'win-win' situation for the Owls - who were expected to get nothing out of the match and could go out and express theirselves with no fear against Steve Bruce's men.

And the former Scunthorpe boss insisted there are plenty of positives to takes from the encounter as the Owls look to get back on track with a festive victory over high-flying Southampton next Saturday at Hillsborough (kick-off 3pm).

He continued: 'There were a lot of positives to take out of the game but I've told them we have to take those into the next one.'
