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

Laws' Musings: Post-Southend

Wednesday boss Brian Laws has his say on the Owls first win of the year - thanks to a last-minute Steve Maclean penalty in a five-goal thriller against Southend on Saturday.

It was also Wednesday's first home win since November, and the Owls gaffer is hopeful the result will act as a stepping stone as he looks to finish the season off on a high.

'It was an important three points and a nervy one at that,' Laws told the official SWFC website.

'Both teams were wanting to win as much as possible but credit to Southend. These aren't easy games and everyone wants you to win because they are at the bottom end but its not easy because they want the three points as one point is no good to them.'

'Thank God we have got our first three points and our first win since the turn of they year and let's hope we can go on from there. The nervousness in the team was showing at times but maybe this win will just give them that confidence boost.'

And Laws was grateful of a bit of luck that give them the three points, following Tommy Spurr's unfortunate own goal at Keniworth Road in midweek.

He added: 'Generally I was delighted with the efforts and particularly in the first half. I thought we should have come in at half time with the game all over with the chances we created. I was disappointed we hadn't scored three or four.

'But we always knew that when there's only one goal in it the next goal is vitally important. If it takes us until the last minute to get the first win under our belt so be it. We've had a bit of luck this time where somebody else has scored an OG but we've had to work hard for it.'

The Owls come up against another team threatened with relegation to League One - in the form of Yorkshire rivals Leeds United at Elland Road on Saturday - and the travelling army of wednesdayites will be hoping the victory gives the team the lift to go on and finish the campaign on a high.
