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

Laws - Owls Had No Spark

Wednesday boss Brian Laws believes the lack of spark in the clash with Wolves cost his men dearly in a drab encounter at Molineux on Tuesday night.

His charges had shown impressive performances in recent matches, beating rivals Sheffield United 2-0 in the Steel City Derby clash before putting in a good display in falling to Premiership side Derby County on penalties in the FA Cup.

And Laws was left dissapointed at the performance his players put in against Mick McCarthy's men.

'It certainly wasn't a performance that we were striving to look for and I think we were very fortunate. We almost got spanked in the first ten minutes with them hitting the bar twice. You need a spark, you need to start the game well and I thought that over the last few games we have been doing that,' Laws told SWFC.co.uk.

'It just shows you that if you don't start well and you come to a place like Wolves you are going to get turned over. The fact that we got back in the game very quickly after they scored showed that we had a bit more resilience.

Laws showed the pride and passion that's required in his time during the 2-0 victory over the Blades recently, and he revealed he won't be accepting any lack of fight within the Owls camp with relegation hovering dangerously over their shoulder.

He continued: 'The one thing I won't accept is a lack of fight and that is one thing I said to one or two of the players in the changing room. That said, moving into extra time, I know it wasn't the best of performances but I felt that we might just hold out for a point.'

And he was also left bemused at the decision by the referee in the lead up to Wolves' winner.

He added: 'Perhaps we need to ask the referee why he changed his mind. He signalled for a goal kick and then he took some time to change his mind to give Wolves a corner, which they scored the winning goal from. I would certainly say the referee had an indifferent performance.'

6 points seperating 13th to 21st.. I'm sure there will be plenty of twists and turns before end of season.

don't mind them losing if they play well, but they could at least pretend to want it!!!! were going to struggle to stay up if they carry on like this!! no money, no fit players = problem!!
