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!!!!
