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

Laws Blames Fatigue

Wednesday boss Brian Laws pointed towards the fatigue from the weekend clash at Leeds for the Owls lacklustre performance against Plymouth on Tuesday night.

Wednesday slugged to a 1-1 draw with Ian Holloway's men in front of a less-than-impressed near-20,000 crowd at Hillsborough - with more fun at the fair on Penistone Road than inside the ground.

But the Owls gaffer has pointed towards his side's hard-working approach with ten-men on Saturday to their downfall on Tuesaday night.

'It was almost 'after the Lord Mayor's show',' Laws told the official SWFC site.

'I thought we were excellent on Saturday against Leeds but one thing that showed tonight was that there were a lot of tired legs out there. We played 40 minutes down to ten men at Leeds on Saturday and I think that showed in the mistakes they were making, that's surely down to tiredness.'

Steve Maclean grabbed a controversial opener for the Owls after strike partner Deon Burton looked to have fouled Argyle stopper McCormick - but Laws was full of praise towards Macca for playing to the whistle.

He said: 'It will be interesting to find out what the referee thought about it, whether there was any intent from Deon Burton while he was on the floor. Quite clearly he didn't think there was and gave the goal. That was smart thinking by Steve Maclean. It got us off on the right foot and there were some real positives in the first half.'

And Laws was also full of praise for Deon Burton - who played through sickness - and new-boy Jermaine Johnson, although the Owls boss didn't think they got the ball to the dangerous winger enough.
