Maclean: Laws Must Have Respect

Maclean: Laws Must Have Respect

Wednesday striker Steve Maclean may be out of contract this summer - but he insists the decisions made by boss Brian Laws must be respected.

Maclean's future at Hillsborough has been thrown in to doubt in recent months as Laws fails to get drawn in to any discussions on the future of his players.

And many fans may have been shocked to see Leon Clarke take the Scottish strikers place for the clash against Cardiff at Ninian Park last Saturday.

But Clarke marked his full Owls debut with a goal in the 2-1 victory over the promotion chasers - and Maclean insists his gaffer must be treated with respect after his decisions over the Easter period paid off with two successive victories to take the Owls to nine games unbeaten.

'The gaffer wanted to look at Leon Clarke on Saturday; I got dropped, then Deon got dropped against Ipswich,' Maclean told the Sheffield Star.

'You have to respect the gaffer's decisions; he's got two results out it. When you get your chance you have to take it. Let's hope I've done that. I did OK, got my goal; I'm happy with my performance. It's a big game on Friday. Hopefully I'll be playing.'

Owls fans have been calling for the former Scunthorpe and Rangers hitman to be offered a new deal in light of his superb goalscoring record since joining the club.

But the Scot has shed no light on his future at S6 and insists the players will keep giving their all as they look to secure their places, and contracts for next season.

'It's going to be hard for us to get into the play-offs. But while it's possible we just have to keep battling away,' he continued.

'We're playing for a position in the League; we're all playing for our futures: boys are playing for contracts, boys are playing for starting positions next season.

'And when we have 24,000 fans here, we can't let them down and just go through the motions. We'll keep going all the way to the end of the season, win lose or draw.'
