The Iron have leaked 43 goals in their 23 league outings this term to leave them with a goal difference of -19 meaning just basement dwellers Hartlepool, the only team below Laws' outfit, have a worse differential.

Scunthorpe have not kept a clean-sheet since September and Laws admits they must rectify their failings at the back.

"It is like losing an extra point given how tight the league is," Laws told the club's official website.

"We are giving away some silly goals and they could be costly in the end because we are conceding the amount of goals that, at some stage, will affect us.

"We have to stop that - it isn't going to be easy, we know that."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
