Laws urges his air force to reward Burnley fans
Burnley boss Brian Laws has urged his players to make the most of their luxury mode of transport to Carrow Road – by giving something back to those supporters making the 400-mile plus round trip by road.
The Clarets will fly to Norwich for tomorrow’s Championship encounter and Laws acknowledges that his team are fortunate to be able to travel in style and take a short cut when faced with another long trip.
“It’s part and parcel of life as a football team and you know you have to do it,” he said. “It’s all about making sure we prepare ourselves.
“We’re going to fly down so that will cut down the travelling side looking ahead, in preparation, to an important home game against Doncaster on Tuesday.”
The Canaries flew to Cardiff last weekend but despite earning praise for their display, they and their fans travelled home empty-handed after a 3-1 defeat.

“In a season we travel thousands and thousands of miles, likewise the supporters, and we appreciate every mile they take to support their team,” said Laws.
“They might not have the luxury of flying down there – it could take seven hours in a car – so we’ve got to put in a performance that matches their effort and give them something to go home with.”

Laws praised City’s style of football and compared them to the club with whom he enjoyed great success as a player, Nottingham Forest.
“Norwich were very unfortunate to go out of the Championship in the first place,” said Laws.
“The club is bigger than where they were and better than where they were.
“Their home performances have been very good. They’re a good footballing side, historically.
“That’s their brand, very similar to the likes of Nottingham Forest. Nothing is accepted by supporters other than good football being played.”
