Nothing but praise

2 November 2013


Dave Jones heaped praise on his players following the emphatic win over Reading on Saturday.


Wednesday turned in their best display of the season to despatch the Royals 5-2 and the manager was delighted to see everything fall into place for his side as they registered their maiden win.


He said: “I have nothing but praise for all of them because they deserve it. This result has been coming and I feel sorry for Reading because everything we did went right for us today.


“But sometimes you make your own luck and it’s not as if we have been playing badly, because we haven’t.


“We all feel we haven’t been getting the breaks, such as the penalty last week and the disallowed goal at Bolton.


“We were watching the Watford v Leicester game earlier today and Leicester got a lucky goal and we thought ‘we just don’t get those kind of breaks’.


“But we got one today in our favour and sometimes those little slices of luck can make all the difference.


“I’ve told the players to enjoy the weekend because on Monday we will be battering them on Monday over the two goals we conceded!”


Jones hailed the impact of loan strikers Matty Fryatt and Connor Wickham, both of whom were on the scoresheet against the Royals.


Fryatt posted a brace while Wickham found the target on his second debut for the Owls.


The manager added: “They are Premiership players and you can see why. They were both outstanding.


“It’s testament to the football club that we can attract players of their calibre and they will only continue to grow stronger and stronger.


“But it’s credit to all of them today. They can take the confidence from a win like that against a very good Reading side.


“Now we have to build on that when we go to another good side in Derby next week.”
