High energy

26 January 2013


Dave Jones praised the energy levels of his players after a stunning late double at The Valley saw the Owls post a memorable win.


Strikes at the last from Reda Johnson and debutant loanee Leroy Lita overturned Johnnie Jackson’s opener for Charlton as the visitors reaped the reward for an impressive display in the capital.


Jones said: “I’m pleased as much as anything else with the energy and drive that the players showed towards the end of the game.


“It shows the commitment that they have and the spirit around the place.


“We would all have been really disappointed had we not taken anything from the game because we thoroughly deserved it.


“I was pleased for the new lads – we only met up with them at the hotel on Friday night – they have settled in well and shown their quality.


“Leroy has scored goals all his career and it was a scruffy one but he won’t be too concerned about that.


“The good strikers get the scruffy goals and he is certainly a good striker.


“Danny has played that role for a long time, in the Premiership and the Championship, he knows it inside out.”


The win at The Valley takes Wednesday six points clear of the drop zone but Jones is focused only on the progress of his team and the club.


He added: “The table will take care of itself so long as we keep doing the right things and picking up the points.


“I know everyone wants it now, and I understand that, but this football club has come a long way in a short space of time.


“I have said all along that this is a work in progress. We have a tremendous camaraderie at the football club, the players are a great group to work with, now we need to keep these good things going.”
