Sheffield Wednesday boss Brian Laws says he should have picked Etienne Esajas in his starting XI for Friday's Steel City derby.

Dutch winger Esajas came off the bench to score and create a goal in the Owls' 3-2 defeat at Bramall Lane.

Laws told BBC Radio Sheffield: "He put in a performance in the second half that sparkled and got us going.

"Managers make the decisions to pick the team and I definitely should have put him in from the start."

The Owls boss added: "He's certainly further in my thoughts now that's for sure."

Esajas is in the final year of his current contract at Hillsborough and is desperate to show that he can play in the Championship on a regular basis.

"I've been on the bench a couple of games now," he said. "I want to play every week."
