Manager's Musings: Post-City

Manager's Musings: Post-City

Wednesday boss Brian Laws reflects on the Owls 2-1 defeat at Manchester City - and insists he can take plenty of positives in to his side's promotion push.

The Owls crashed out of the FA Cup Third Round on Tuesday night after Darius Vassell hit a 56th minute winner after Lee Bullen had levelled Stephen Ireland's opener.

But Wednesday, backed by 6,000 fans, didn't go down without a fight and could have got so much more from the clash - a fighting spirit that Laws is hoping will push his team up the league table.

Laws told the official SWFC site: 'We could have dropped our headsa but we kept going and made it an enthralling last 20 minutes. I've said to the players in the dressing room that we're looking up now - let's give everything we have between now and the end of the season and see where it takes us.'

But Laws pointed towards the difference in the finishing in the reason City progressed - a difference which shows the difference between a Championship and Premiership outfit.

He continued: 'Maybe that's the difference between the Premiership and the Championship, Vassell took the second goal superbly. But our endeavour, effort and committment were there.'

And he felt his side did enough to provide the 26,000 Eastlands crowd - and the many more watching at home on Sky - with an entertaining clash.

'What a replay! It was fantastic to watch, particularly in the second half, which was end-to-end. We gave it a go and it was a great advert for the FA Cup.' he added.
