Dave Jones: Derby spice

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."

air play to the lad. I'd like to think I 'd have no fear of heading off to the other side of the world to coach, but in truth, I don't have the cajones. Hopefully he can make a decent living out of it.
