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.

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
