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

Laws Hails Hard Working Owls

Wednesday boss Brian Laws was full of praise for his hard working Owls side as they picked up their second victory in three days against Ipswich Town on Monday.

Second-half strikes from Glenn Whelan and Steve Maclean gave Wednesday a comfortable 2-0 victory over Jim Magilton's Tractor Boys at Hillsborough to complete a superb Easter after beating Cardiff City on Saturday.

And the Owls boss revealed his delight at the 'fantastic position' he finds himself in with all four strikers currently competing for a first team place impressing when called upon.

'It is a fantastic position to be in as a manager,' Laws told the official SWFC website.

'We keep freshening things up and we brought MacLean in. He's got a goal and in the last game, against Cardiff, we brought Leon Clarke in and he scored a goal. It's really encouraging for us knowing that we can get goals from any of the strikers at this moment in time.'

Wednesday now have four players all in double figures in the scoring charts this term, with Leon Clarke also winning the majority of Wednesday fans over thanks to his performances over the last two games.

But Laws was also full of praise for his defenders after they helped keep just the second clean sheet of the year - with a little bit of luck added in.

'You need a little bit of luck on your side sometimes to get a clean sheet as well because they are very rare and it doesn't matter how we are going to get the results at this time it is important to keep the run going.' he added.

Wednesday will be hoping to take their unbeaten run to ten games and keep their slim hopes of a play-off spot alive when they make the trip to West Brom this Friday night (kick-off 7.45pm).
