Burnley boss Laws: Nerves will play part in relegation scrap

Burnley boss Brian Laws admits nerves will play a part in the season run-in's battle for Premiership safety.

Laws expects nerves to affect most teams but feels his side, still enjoying their first crack at the top division for 33 seasons, can play as if they have nothing to lose.

He said: "It is so tight, everyone is taking points off each other. It may be a low points tally to survive this year, it might even go to goal difference.

"One goal could be the difference in staying in the Premier League. That gives me great hope there are a lot of teams looking over their shoulders. If you win a game you jump one hell of a lot of places. There is everything to play for.

"There are another six or seven teams there all very nervy. But are we nervy? No. We are enjoying our time here. Come the last 13 games they will start dropping below us."
