The Owls were made to pay for their profligacy when Miguel Llera put through his own net to condemn them to their 10th league defeat of the season.

"I'm starting to sound like a broken record, but what more do we have to do?" said Jones. "We've created plenty of chances, we've had them pinned back, but if we don't score the goals, we don't win the games."

Jones added: "It's that finishing touch, that composure in the final third and we will continue the search to bring someone else in."

"We have been beaten by a Nottingham Forest side that has aspirations for the Premiership but we have matched them and played well, but we're missing the edge and composure in front of goal. It doesn't matter what formation we play, we will create chances.

"They are a great bunch of lads, they work so hard, and they are very frustrated in the dressing room right now because they know that we are not that far away."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
