Johnson equalised Jordan Rhodes' opening goal and went on to score the winner at Hillsborough, after a Leroy Lita penalty for the home side was cancelled out by Scott Dann.

"He is a danger in that position. We say here that JJ will get you out your seat and sometimes he can dump you back in it as well that's the type of player he is. He was different class today," Jones said of Johnson.

"It's his day and that's what you want. He sets the tone, the standard; he has to do it again."

The victory takes the Owls up to 18th in the Championship on 50 points, three points clear of the relegation zone.

But Jones believes they face some crucial matches before they can secure their place in the division.

"We have got six cup finals. I've said it all along it could take 55 points, it could take as many as that," added Jones.

"Everyone is fighting, it's such a tough division and it's getting harder and harder.

"They are all hard games - we showed a lot of character, a lot of determination and a lot of grit and that is what you will need, not just good play."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
