'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Manager's Musings: Pre-City

Brian Laws looks towards Sunday's FA Cup 3rd Round clash with Stuart Pearce's Manchester City as the ideal opportunity to boost his transfer kitty and bring in new players.

Wednesday chairman Dave Allen highlighted a good cup run as a good source of income to fund the manager's transfer kitty - but with the Owls crashing out of the League Cup against lowly Wrexham - the Owls will have to sweep aside Premiership opposition to progress in the prestigious competition.

'It's an opportunity for us to win and hopefully pull off another plum tie in the next round,' Laws told the Sheffield Star.

'If we can put together a decent run in the Cup we can amass a substantial amount of money, which could make a difference in whether I can buy a player. Anything we get out of the Cup will be a bonus that will help me to strengthen the side.'

'I haven't got money to go out and spend, unless it's for a player who would be of exceptional value to us. Generally, it's going to be loans. The loan market can be used extremely well if you use your money wisely.'

And Laws told the official SWFC site that City won't relish coming to Hillsborough to face an in-form Wednesday side - despite Stuart Pearce's men having a similar impressive run over the festive period.

'They won't relish coming to Hillsborough against our crowd, who I hope will be inspirational. I'm sure the supporters are looking on this as a great chance for us. Manchester City aren't noted for being good at travelling, nor at playing in cup competitions against lower division teams.' he said.

Tickets are still available for the clash in the home ends but fans have been advised to arrive at Hillsborough early to avoid queuing at the ground.
