Laws buoyed by Alexander return

BY foxsports • February 26, 2010

The Clarets go into the clash with Pompey - who will officially go into administration on Friday morning and incur an automatic nine-point penalty - one point from safety. While that punishment will all but condemn the league's bottom side to relegation, Burnley are just three points from 14th-placed Sunderland, and will be looking to boost their survival hopes with a win on Saturday. Alexander, 38, is in contention for a return after a month out with a calf problem - and Laws feels he could be a valuable asset. "He's been working extremely hard over the last week, he has been training with us consistently and he's an important player," Laws told the Clarets' website. "He will certainly come into my thoughts, particularly for this weekend, because it doesn't matter about his age, it's about his organisation and his communication and his composure that we could do with."
