Laws Settles For A Point

Wednesday boss Brian Laws settled for a point from the clash with relegation-threatened QPR on Saturday - and looked at it as a point further towards a top-ten finish.

Chris Brunt gave the Owls a second-half advantage against the run of play but were soon pegged back as Martin Rowlands netted from the spot after Richard Wood was adjudged to have commited a foul in the R's box.

And the Owls gaffer insisted he was pleased with the point in light of Rangers' desperate need for points in the battle against the drop to League One.

'We settled for a point in the end but we came here to try and win the game. We knew it was going to be a tough game because QPR are fighting for their lives, they need the points,' Laws told the official SWFC site.

'I think we had to deal with something like 40 aerial balls in to the box and I felt we dealt with it quite well. Maybe that was their game plan, to put the ball in to the box as quickly as possible to put us under pressure. It became a bit scrappy and there was not a lot of quality from either side until the later stages.'

And Laws went on to reveal the Owls had a top-ten finish as their target for the remainder of the campaign.

He added: 'That belief is coming back and our target now is to finish in the top ten. It would be a great achievement for the football club, it would be satisfactory because it would be the best position Sheffield Wednesday have finished in for the last seven years. It is also a good starting position for next year.'

The Owls will be hoping to make extra steps to a top-ten position on Tuesday as Colchester United look to continue their superb season by making the long trip up to Hillsborough on Tuesday night (kick-off 7.45pm).
