Dave Jones: Takes his Owls team to Leeds on Saturday

Wednesday are without a point from their opening two games but Jones is confident results will improve - starting with the Sky Live game against Leeds at Elland Road on Saturday lunchtime.

"It would be quite easy to panic at this early stage," he said. "We are only two games in. Certainly against QPR we should have got something and even at home against Burnley in the second half, we had a lot of chances to get the equaliser.

"We've just got to keep plugging away, we're not at full strength - we know that we've got one or two injuries that are hindering us at the moment - but I can't fault the players for what their trying to do.

"There's been a lack of concentration at certain times that has cost us a goal but that will happen to every club in this division."

Jones also admitted the club are struggling to find the funds to bring in a much-needed boost to their front line, but insisted he was comfortable with the situation and that the search would go on.

"It's no secret that we're looking for another striker but at the moment, we've got to cut our cloth accordingly and we have to move people out before we can move people in.

"That's the way it's got to be and we just get on with it."

You can see Leeds take on Sheffield Wednesday live from midday on Saturday on Sky Sports 1HD.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
