The 22-year-old midfielder grabbed the headlines last season by scoring a brace in the Carling Cup quarter-final win against Arsenal.[LNB]The Scotland Under-21 international then claimed a late equaliser in the 3-3 draw at Manchester City in November but that is the only goal McDonald has scored in 13 starts this term.[LNB]Laws replaced previous manager Owen Coyle in January and is battling to keep the Clarets in the Premier League.[LNB]And while he believes there is no doubt about McDonald's ability, Laws reckons the former Dundee man can get even better if he had greater self-belief.[LNB]"Kevin's a good player, he's just got to believe in himself a little bit more," Laws told the Lancashire Telegraph.[LNB]"He lacks a little bit of confidence sometimes in his own ability, he's a bit negative on himself.[LNB]"But you tell them and show them they're good players and eventually they'll believe it.[LNB]"He's a good player, he's got stature, strength, good ability on the ball and I know he can get a goal as well, so I'm looking for him to chip in.[LNB]"He is quiet, he's not vocal on the pitch, he has to be built up. The quiet ones - you don't lie to them.[LNB]"If they're having a good game, tell them. If they're having a bad game, tell them. He could be a significant player."[LNB][LNB] Barclays Premier League Relegation 2009/2010. Click here to bet.
