We stay together

6 October 2012


Dave Jones remains frustrated by the Owls’ indifferent run of results but insists everyone at the club will stick together in a bid to emerge from the current rut.


Saturday’s 1-0 defeat to Hull was Wednesday’s sixth loss in seven league games but Jones did take some heart from the level of performance at Hillsborough.


He said: “We are all in this together and we will have to fight our way out of it. That is the only thing we can do.


“The most frustrating thing is that we are not getting battered by anyone, we are getting edged out by our own errors and that is what has happened again today.


“We should have defended the goal a lot better because it is a simple error with someone not being in the right position.”


To add to Wednesday’s woes, the manager felt his side were hard done by courtesy of two incidents in either half.


In the first 45, the Owls claimed a Miguel Llera header may have crossed the line and after the break saw penalty claims waved away when Michail Antonio went tumbling in the area.


Jones said: “We thought it was over the line, their lad is a couple of feet behind the line when he clears it.


“The referee said he didn’t see it and linesman didn’t give it, so fair enough, you accept that, they can’t give what they don’t see. So you can’t criticise anyone for that.


“But when Michail goes through, he goes down and he has no reason to go down because he’s through.


“It doesn’t matter if the defender has lost his footing.”


The Owls now head into the second international break of the season and Jones added:


“We would like to get straight out there and have another game so the break is a bit frustrating.


“But it gives us the chance to get back put on the training ground and work hard to put things right.


“I can’t really fault them today because we have had a lot of possession, a few chances, but the one lack of concentration has cost us.”
