Laws: We Need Adaptability

Laws: We Need Adaptability

Wednesday boss Brian Laws has pointed towards his players' versatility as to how well the Owls will do over the busy Christmas and New Year fixture schedule.

Wednesday will face four vital matches in the space of just ten days over the festive period - starting with Saturday's crunch clash with high-flying Southampton at Hillsborough - and Laws has revealed he will play players out of position and make the most of his squad to keep players fresh.

'We can change people around, and this is the time of year we need players to be able to do that,' Laws told the Sheffield Star.

'The games come thick and fast over the Christmas period. Players don't have time to recover from little injuries, so it is likely that some will have to play out of position, at some stage.

'You're very lucky if you can keep it all intact, there are too many games. You have to make sure that you are organised if you do have to make changes in personnel or formation. I expect my players to be adaptable, and we've got several who can play in different positions.'

Laws has already used top-scorer Marcus Tudgay on the right wing following the injury to Wayne Andrews at the weekend - and the Owls boss has no worries about using him there in the future.

Chris Brunt has also been used on the right - and jack of all trades Lee Bullen has shown he's capable of playing literally anywhere since coming to Hillsborough.

The period - which pits Wednesday against Stoke away on Boxing Day, Barnsley away on December 30 and Hull at home on New Year's Day - will be Laws' toughest test yet as Wednesday boss, and will be one which the Hillsborough faithful hope he can come through with flying colours.
