The Elland Road club have named former Reading chief Brian McDermott as their new manager and will take charge with immediate effect.

But Jones, who was at the centre of a storm following the reverse fixture in October when he branded all Leeds fans "vile animals", insists the opposition's managerial situation will not affect the game.

"It's a derby game, it will be exciting anyway," he said. "It's a big derby because it's Sheffield Wednesday and it's Leeds United, it doesn't matter if there's a new manager or not because everyone will be fired up.

"It has all the ingredients of being the game it's being billed as.

"Form and everything else goes out the window. You look for everything to get an advantage. Whatever is thrown at us we have to deal with."

m not sure about this distance covered malarky, plus that stat comes with *since February attached to it, that's just 1 month. I mean I have 27 open cases I'm 'working on' at the moment but believe me others with 10 cases work harder than I do. I just got back from a pub lunch, scampi and chips (+4 pints) in case you were wondering.
