Wednesday were beaten 2-0 at the home of their League One opponents and missed the chance to set up a fourth-round trip to QPR.

And Jones felt both referee Lee Collins and his strikers were guilty of being too timid.

He said: "He allowed (Dons midfielder) Alan Smith to run the game. At the end of the day he might as well have given the whistle to Alan, because he ran the game.

"I just thought it was too big a game for him. He lost it somewhere along the line and that can happen, so he's had a bad day at the office."

Of his team, Jones said: "We didn't really get many shots in on goal and that was disappointing because we saw plenty of the ball.

"But we didn't seem to want to shoot and that's not like us. We had more than a few chances to get the ball into the box but ended up almost passing it back to the goalkeeper. We need to be more forward thinking.

"I'm disappointed to go out of the cup because we had a chance to go through and the side we put out was good enough to win the game. And I really felt for the fans behind that goal who came all the way down here."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
