Laws Confident Of Upturn

Wednesday boss Brian Laws is confident his charges can produce an upturn of results in the coming weeks following the Owls' worst ever start to a season.

Defeat at Preston at the weekend broke the record for the worst ever start to a season by a Wednesday side and left the Owls as the only side in England without a point to their name after the first five games.

But the Owls gaffer is confident in the ability his squad possesses - and is sure his men can turn things around with two home matches against Burnley and Hull City on the horizon.

'We have been on a bad run of results but we will go on a good run of results,' he said following the defeat at Deepdale on Saturday.

'We are capable of that because we are a good side. I am fully behind the players and they are fully behind themselves.

'The supporters can play a major part in this. They can turn the heat up on the players, which could be disastrous. If the players go out there with the same positivity we will win the games against Burnley on Tuesday and Hull on Saturday.'

And Laws was left fuming at the decision not to award Wednesday a free-kick for a foul on Francis Jeffers which led to the only goal of the game.

He added: 'It's so easy to point the finger and blame other people and I don't want to go down that route, but there were some bizarre decisions given, particularly in the first half.'

'I will back the players that put in that kind of football, commitment and effort because our luck will turn if we continue like that.

Brian. If the fans see genuine effort and commitment, it is unlikely that they will turn on the team. Unfortunately the same cannot be said of the board and indeed yourself. This is a results business and five games in, we are the only club in England who havnt got one. We are a laughing stock,and the longer it goes on, the less likely we will attract the sort of player that will turn the tide. 2 wins is a minimum requirement from the next 2 games,or im afraid Brian your number will be up. Unfortunate as that may be.

I wish I had the same confidence Brian!

the simple fact of the matter is we are not good enough, we can bleat on about luck... b*llocks! we have shots cleared of the line because teams have the defensive nous to put sum1 there unlike ourselves, we can waffle on about shots hitting the inside of the post when "99% of the time" it would of gone in..... ***** off the shot was off target.... luck has nothing to do with it, playing poorly has everything to do with it...... *****ed off!

Well Mansfield you sound as ****ed off as me. Luck can play a part I think,but not week after week, game after game. Its down to something else. Laws says we are a good team. Good teams do not lose 5 games on the bounce. 2 wins from the next 2 games required. Simple as,or Im afraid he has to go.

as much as i hate to agree something has to give, and i think mr laws' head is most definately on the block tuesday night, with a grinning dave allen sharpening his axe
mansfieldowl

thewalkleyone

I guess he has to be. realistically, he must be up there with the Spud as favourites fro the chop if this carries on much longer ...never mind the grief from the fans....
