Laws' Relief At Victory

Laws' Relief At Victory

Wednesday boss Brian Laws has revealed his relief at getting the first three points of the Owls year with a 3-2 victory over Southend - and insists the win will be a massive confidence boost to his squad.

The Owls had slipped down the league ladder quicker than Jermaine Johnson down the wing, but an injury time spot-kick from Steve Maclean stopped the rot and lifted a huge weight off the Owls gaffer's shoulders.

'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,' he told the official SWFC site.

'It was an important three points and a nervy one at that. 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.'

The victory has lifted spirits in the Owls squad at a vital period in the season - and just in time for the big Yorkshire derby against Leeds United at Elland Road on Saturday.

And Laws will be hoping his men can carry their first half performance in to the clash with their rivals from 30 miles up the M1 - a half which should have seen the Owls home and dry with a number of missed chances in front of goal.

He added: 'Generally I was delighted with the efforts and particularly in the first half,' Laws continued. '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.'
