Jones seeks finishing touch for Owls

Jones seeks finishing touch for Owls

Wednesday boss Dave Jones bemoaned his side's bad luck after Nottingham Forest inflicted a third straight defeat on the Owls at the City Ground on Saturday.

Miguel Llera's own goal with 15 minutes to go gave Forest all three points thanks to a slender 1-0 victory in the Championship but Wednesday had their fair share of good chances to take more from the match.

They didn't take them, and the Owls boss was forced to reflect on another performance he believed should have merited more for his men.

"I am starting to sound like a broken record but what more do we have to do?,' Jones told the official SWFC website.

"We have created plenty of chances, we have had them pinned back but if we don`t score the goals, we don`t win the games.

"And we should have had the game sewn up long before they scored and when they did score, it was an own goal.'

Jones has been hard at work looking for a striker to bolster his attacking options over recent weeks and he'll ramp up that search this coming week.

Connor Wickham, the Sunderland striker, is one name who has been doing the rounds and Jones will be hoping the England under-21 man, or another of his targets, manage to make their way to Hillsborough before next Saturday's home clash against on-song Leicester City.

We have all probably played Football Manager but even if we haven't most of us still seem to have a clue? Increase your chances of scoring by playing with more than 1 up front. Its so basic I really dont understand how a manager thats been in the game so long cant see this? I am starting to lose the faith! :(

I agree Oz but also to play with two upfront you have to have four very good midfielders at present we have Samedo & Antonio so to compensate we slam 5 in midfield.

We slammed five in midfield in order to accommodate Barkley, now he's been removed from the equation I'm looking forward to the return of 4-4-2 as well as instant dividends.

I would add Mccabe and Corry to those midfielders as well. both need a few more games to gain some valuable experience but i don't think we will be risking anything by playing them either. Also Mayor interests me I think he has the potential to be ok just needs a run of games and some strikers to aim for!
