We deserved at least point says Jones after another home flop

Dave Jones felt Wednesday deserved more after a third successive home defeat, this time 1-0 against Hull City, saw us slip into the Championship relegation zone.

Jones said: “It’s not a game we felt we deserved to lose but you can’t keep saying that. I think everybody is just frustrated. It either had 0-0 written all over it or we had a 1-0 steal ourselves.

“We created our own problem by switching off for the goal. We’ve got to stop conceding sloppy, lazy goals and that’s what it all comes down.”

Lewis Buxton and Miguel Llera were both back in the side, while Jones dropped skipper Martin Taylor,  and the Owls were more than a match for their opponents in the first half, with Llera going closest to breaking the deadlock – his header on 20 minutes appearing to cross the line, only for the referee to wave play on.

We should have had a penalty in the second half when Andy Dawson pulled down Michail Antonio, but again the referee was having none of it, and Wednesday failed to repeat their promising first-half display.

Jermaine Johnson brightened up proceedings when he came on for the ineffective Jay Bothroyd but, just as the game looked to be heading for a goalless draw, Hull sub Aaron McLean broke clear in the box to fire low across Chris Kirkland and into the far corner.

It signals just one point out of the last 21 for the Owls and with Millwall, including Mark Beevers on loan, winning in the last minute at home to Bolton, we are down to 22nd place.
