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

Positive Watford deserve credit - Laws

Forget what you might have read in the Nottingham press about Watford`s "blunt and abrasive` style of football, Sheffield Wednesday boss Brian Laws reckon the Hornets should be praised for their attack minded approach.

Oh yes. After midweek reports that suggested Watford 'battered and bruised` their way past Forest (yes, really) it`s refreshing to see that finally someone has shaken off the blinkers of long ball footie and seen that Brendan Rodgers has actually got his troops playing a gung ho passing game.

Laws, who has a pretty decent record against the Hornets as a boss, told the official Owls website "…Watford deserve credit because they turned around a very difficult situation that they had after Aidy Boothroyd left".

He added "They were on such a downward spiral…there was a lot of turmoil but they have turned their results around they have some consistency now….

And the Hornets recent fine fettle of form hasn`t gone unnoticed on the Owls gaffer either. Laws added "They have won 5 out of 6 games, they will be in a positive mood…they will be looking for another win against us".

But don`t be fooled by Laws` lavish praise. He reckons the Hornets "aren`t a defending team" (no Shittu, Sherlock!!) and his side are "going to Watford with a lot of confidence and … to win the game".

Should be "open and entertaining" as the Wednesday boss predicts it will then - after all in 33 league games between the 2 sides there`s never been a nil-nil`er!!!!

but the facts are that you need more points to get away from down the bottom with time ticking on.

Must say the lads are starting to perform. I'm sure you would have taken seven points from the last three games if asked before hand. Just got to keep up the current form and i'm sure you'll stay up.
