Dave Jones: Wants Sheffield Wednesday to focus on own results

The Owls are above the drop zone on goal difference, with 11 teams separated by just five points at the bottom.

But Jones wants Wednesday to keep survival in their own hands by focussing on their own performances.

"You can't rely on what others are doing, you've got to do it yourself," he told the club's official website.

"If you rely on someone else to help you out in football, it doesn't normally work out. It's best to do it yourself.

"You get more pleasure that way as well. We are working hard for it and everyone is up for the fight.

"There is a good atmosphere in this place, the players are working really hard, they are playing well and everybody knows what is expected of them.

"At this time of the year you can have disharmony, pressure or whatever else, but we're going into games enjoying it and that is important."

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.
