Jeff Hendrick and Jamie Ward put the visitors in control before Michail Antonio pulled a goal back in the 51st minute following a goalmouth scramble and Miguel Llera's header six minutes later completed the comeback.

"We didn't really get going. We were sloppy and we were slow in what we were doing and we just looked a bit rushed," said Jones.

"After giving the penalty away we then started to play and I thought we were going to go on and win it in the end.

"I don't see why we should have to go 2-0 down to start playing. A point was a fair result in the end.

"You give yourself a mountain to climb when you give a penalty away and full credit to everybody in the dressing room because they worked hard and got back into it.

"Everybody showed great character, rolled up their sleeves and got going.

"Confidence was never really low. We lost games we shouldn't have lost. We're competing in a really hard division but it looks like we're back on track and anything is achievable."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
