Laws Hopeful Over Burton

Laws Hopeful Over Burton

Wednesday boss Brian Laws is hopeful that he will have striker Deon Burton available for the start of the new season despite fears he may be suspended.

The former Derby and Portsmouth hitman had a two-match suspension hanging over his head - which would have kicked in for the Owls' first two matches of the season - after being sent off for a dubious offence on the club's pre-season tour of Holland.

But Laws now insists last season's joint top scorer at Hillsborough could 'slip through the net' due to a technicality in the ruling.

'He could actually slip through the net on this one, because there's certain criteria that don't tick many boxes in the FA's favour,' Laws told Radio Sheffield.

'Having spoken to Keith Hackett and the FA they've pointed us in the right direction, so there's a slight possibility that he could actually have no suspension at all.

'We'll clarify that, hopefully in the next few days.'

But Laws is not so confident over an appeal on the sending off of winger Chris Brunt, who will also face a two-match ban at the start of the new campaign following his sending off in Holland.

I've got to be honest, having Burton as back-up or to play alongside a big target man is pretty tidy. I have always like him as a player and has had a nack of scoring goals at quite an alarming rate against WATFORD in previous seasons.... Dr Watford - VITALWATFORD

Burton has developed his game at wednesday, there is a lot of expectation on his shoulders next year especially as it looks like wednesday are not going to replace 13 goals in steve mclean, I hope tudgay doesn't drop his head again and dip in form, Clarke isn't good enough and I think we could be punished next year, there is a clear gulf in the premiership and that same gulf I think is starting to emerge in the championship, allen won't pay any wages, or spend any transfer money, laws has a tough job next year
