Jones lost his job the day after the club lost 2-0 at Blackpool on Saturday, with the 57-year-old having guided his side to just one victory in 16 league matches this season.

Assistant manager Paul Wilkinson has also left Hillsborough.

Gray will take charge of the side for the league match against Championship leaders Leicester with Wednesday six points adrift of safety.

"Sheffield Wednesday can confirm that first-team coach Stuart Gray will take charge for Tuesday's Sky Bet Championship clash with Leicester City at Hillsborough," read a club statement.

"Following the departure of Dave Jones as first-team manager, the club can also confirm that assistant Paul Wilkinson has departed S6."

Former Nottingham Forest, Barnsley and Aston Villa midfielder Gray spent two years in charge of Northampton from 2007 and has also had spells as caretaker-boss of Aston Villa, Wolves, Burnley and Portsmouth.

Gray previously worked alongside Jones at Southampton and Wolves before becoming part of the coaching staff at Hillsborough last December.

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
