Burnley boss Laws expecting extra effort from off contract players

Burnley boss Brian Laws expects his off contract players to lift their game as they chase new deals.

Laws expects his players to be fired up as 12 of them are out of contract in the summer, including Brian Jensen, Clarke Carlisle, Michael Duff, Graham Alexander, Robbie Blake, Stephen Jordan and skipper Steven Caldwell.

Laws said: "It's something I'll be looking at over the coming weeks. Those that are out of contract will want to know so I'll be letting them know in the not-too-distant future. When you're out of contract, of course it will motivate you to work harder.

"Nobody has got a divine right to get a contract, you've got to work and show that you're the type of player who is going to give everything to the football club, and I have no question that they would because they are good people."
