Dave Jones: Insists Gary Madine still has a future at Sheffield Wednesday

Madine ended a four-month goal drought to set the Owls on their way to a victory that keeps them above the drop zone, though Reda Johnson's header proved decisive after Jacob Mellis nicked an injury-time consolation.

"Gary had a good season last year and he scored a lot of goals," said Jones, whose side are still just a point clear of danger after rivals Wolves and Peterborough also won.

"He has struggled to adapt at this level but he has worked at it and worked it. There has been a lot said about a falling out. There has never been any problems.

"Strikers are a commodity that everyone wants if they can score goals. It's nice for him to get his goal.

"If I didn't feel he could score goals he wouldn't be here. We will keep working with him."

Wednesday were second best until Madine's opener, but Jones felt his side were worthy winners in the end.

"The second half we took it to them and thoroughly deserved the win in the end," he added.

"It was all about getting the three points for us. We got in behind them a couple of times in the second half and could have won by more."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
