The Owls turned in a workmanlike performance on a difficult surface and were rewarded for their efforts when Leroy Lita headed in Michail Antonio's superb cross.

Jones said: "It was a hard-earned win from a dogged performance. I thought we were solid, we protected Chris Kirkland really well and I think we deserved the win in the end.

"I was really pleased with the goal, it was a fantastic ball in from Antonio and you know what you get from Leroy, it's what he's all about.

"He was hardly in the game for long spells but when he gets the chance he usually puts the ball in."

Jones also praised his new additions, saying: "I am really happy with the squad we have now. We have strength in depth and it's really the first time we have had that since I have been here.

"Signings like Lita and Connor Wickham mean we now have the players to bring on to make a difference. I'm really pleased we got the three points today."

t's just a ride. Bill Hicks is sorely missed, what a prophet and still relevant twenty years after his death. I'm glad though he didn't get to see George Bush Jnr as President.
