Laws Praises Owls Belief

Laws Praises Owls Belief

Wednesday boss Brian Laws was delighted that his charges made it two league wins on the spin at Norwich on Saturday, and is confident the belief in the camp is returning.

The Owls made a disastrous start to the new season with six defeats on the spin, but the future is now looking much brighter thanks to Wade Small's second half winner at Carrow Road which lifts the Owls off the bottom of the Championship table for the first time in a number of weeks.

And the Wednesday gaffer believes the victory will lift the belief within the group as they look to climb up the Championship table in the coming weeks and months.

'Obviously we are very pleased with a second win in succession and two clean sheets in two games is fantastic too because they have been hard to come by,' Laws told the official SWFC website.

'That will give us a bit more belief, the first win, against Hull, was always going to be the most important but you could see the inner belief coming back.'

It was the second clean sheet on the bounce for Wednesday in the league following the previous weekend's 1-0 win over Hull City - but Laws insists there is still plenty to work on.

He added: 'We have to have a bit more creativity in the final third because neither goalkeeper had very much to do in the first half. In the second half we started to show the kind of ability we have on the ball and moved the ball well in the last third.'

And while Wednesday may have started their recovery to a more successful season, they could well have piled more pressure on Norwich boss Peter Grant, who received cries of 'you don't know what you're doing' from the Canaries faithful following the defeat.

'Some of the fans had their say at the end, and I won't criticise them for that. I actually thought they were excellent in the first half,' he said.

'They got right behind us, and I actually thought we did okay without showing enough penetration. We got in some good positions, but didn't make the most of them, and the crowd couldn't have been better.

'Unfortunately, the edginess started to creep in when that goal went in. Players were not doing the simple things and were not making themselves available for possession, and in the end we got punished.'

Lets hope that they keep the belief in the squad for the trip to Watford, it's going to be a tough game but i think with the last two games has brought some confidence back and that a result is a possibility down at Vicarage Road.
will it ever happen

Nothing expected from the trip to Watford. A point would be a bonus, 3 unthinkable! Which is a shame because it would be nice to keep this 'mini run' going...
