Owls boss Brian Laws will be putting the horrors of Wednesday`s last away match to the back of his head as he targets his team to be in a top ten position all season. The Owls went 2-0 up last season before allowing Charlton back into it and losing 3-2. Mark Beevers is still out and Franny Jeffers makes the bench again, Wade Small makes his first start of the season in place of Esajas who drops to the bench.
