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

Keogh Praise For Owls Boss

Former Scunthorpe striker Andrew Keogh is full of praise for his former manager Brian Laws - but is keen to get one over on him when the two meet this afternoon.

Laws gave the young striker his chance at Scunthorpe after failing to get a chance when coming through the Leeds United youth ranks - and turned him into one of the hottest properties in the lower leagues.

Keogh's impressive performances for the Iron linked him with a number of Championships clubs during the January transfer window - even the Owls - but it was Wolves boss Mick McCarthy who got the chequebook out for his services.

And this afternoon's clash between Wednesday and promotion-chasing Wolves will be the first time Laws has come up against his former striker. Keogh fully recognises the help his former gaffer gave him - but is keen to 'turn him over' at Hillsborough today.

'Brian Laws was the one who gave my chance in league football and I appreciate it greatly,' Keogh told the Birmingham Mail.

'I wasn't playing at Leeds so it felt good to be wanted and the move worked out very well for me. Like Mick McCarthy, he is a passionate manager who gives his all on the touchline. But, at the same time, he also encourages his teams to get the ball down and play.

'As far as I'm concerned, that sort of approach to the game suits me perfectly, which is why I think things went so well at Scunthorpe. Clearly, it will be a tough game.

'And, while I very much appreciate everything he did for me, obviously now I'm going to try and turn him over tomorrow.'

Wolves will be hoping to get their season firmly back on track after their winning run of six games on the spin ended at Coventry in midweek. Meanwhile, Wednesday will be hoping to continue their five-match unbeaten run.
