The substitute winger was sent off for a head butt 12 minutes from time, having joined the action on the hour mark.

Ben Pringle fired the hosts ahead, with Rhys McCabe levelling matters for the Owls before Lee Frecklington grabbed Rotherham's second seven minutes before half-time.

And Jones said of Johnson: "It was just stupidity, you can't headbutt somebody, it's just not acceptable.

"He's been told I can't defend it and neither can JJ.

"We're trying to get back into the game, it's hard enough with 11 men and going down to 10 makes it more difficult. He'll be punished and rightly so because I lose him for three games."

As for the match, he added: "What cost me the game is we didn't defend two long throws into the box.

"I was disappointed we didn't get a grip of the game from the word go but we knew it was going to be difficult.

"I thought there was a bit of a panic with us for clearances. It's disappointing because we know we are better than that."

Delighted Rotherham boss Steve Evans added: "It was a great win for us against a great football club.

"We always believed we could win but we knew we would have to play well.

"We did our homework and we had a game plan. It was a magnificent cup tie and it was a great achievement for this football club to win at home for the first time against Sheffield Wednesday for 37 years."

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.

amous. If that can be achieved whilst sitting in your pants and without any degree of hard work, all the better. I have no desire to be famous, but the rest of that line suits me just fine. Great article by the way, well worth the wait.

here seems to be little focus on the performance of Besiktas. They played very well and stopped Arsenal from playing. Credit has to go to their manager. As much as Arsenal didn't play too well, we kept a clean sheet, but the home side made it very difficult.
