Laws eyes more new arrivals

Burnley manager Brian Laws has vowed to try and lift the mood at Turf Moor, with his new charges having gone 11 Premier League games without a victory.

A 1-0 defeat at Bolton Wanderers dropped the Clarets down into the relegation places, with Laws facing a tough test to lift morale in the Burnley camp.

He told his club's official website:"There's no way I will allow the players to start sulking or worrying, because they have worked too hard to get where they want to be.

"The players have gone a long time without a win and of course it's a mental thing.

"It's up to us to help them and support them and maybe bringing in a few new players before the transfer window shuts could be one of those helping hands they need.

"I am hoping to secure a couple of bodies before the weekend. We will assess the injury damage that has occurred and see if we need to strengthen any more.

"I know the board are anxious to bring in a couple of bodies. We are trying to do everything possible to bring in the quality we need and support the players to get them through this position.

"They need support and they need to believe in themselves. They got into the Premier League for one reason, because they are good players and they mustn't go away from that."
