'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Jones content with Ipswich Town point

Wednesday boss Dave Jones was content with a point against Ipswich Town that nudged the Owls closer to Championship safety.

Leroy Lita's second-half strike cancelled out Jay Tabb's opener to give both sides a crucial point in the battle against relegation.

Wednesday are a point further adrift of the bottom three after the weekend matches, with four points now the barrier with just two league games to go.

"A point was a fair result. They had one cleared off the line and we had one chalked off for an offside that must have been very close so it finished pretty even,' Jones told the official SWFC website.

"And I`m pleased for the players because that`s two very hard games in a few days and I thought we looked a bit leggy, particularly in the first half.

"But we battled on, we got the goal, and we did deserve something from the game."

Jones's counterpart Mick McCarthy was happy to take a point from their away clash, too.

'There isn't a bad away point,' he told BBC Sport.

'We played well enough to be in front by more in the first half but then Dave will argue that they've had the better of the second.

'It was probably honours even in terms of playing and result and we shouldn't have even bothered; I'd have taken a point before we started. Instead of kicking lumps out of each other, we could've just settled it.'

At this stage in the season a point is a point and I can't see us dipping at this late stage. However when is DJ going to lairn that playing 1 up front is not the answer. It took him all of 20 minutes to realise he needed a target for Lita to feed off. I felt for Kieron Lee when he was pulled off because JJ must shoulder a lot of the blame considering he was already struggling. Also from where I was sitting, the ruled out goal was definitely not offside, in fact the linesman in front of the south stand had an absolutely appalling game giving obtuse decisions all afternoon. Roll on Saturday and stuff the Posh on telly. Lets show the viewing public what we are all about.

Jones' post-match comments are a bit like crawling past a particularly nasty accident on the motorway, you can't help but check it out and then wish you hadn't. We're now being told that he's 'happy' to go to the last game needing to win, that having our destiny in our own hands is the 'biggest thing'. Trouble is, we've already lost ten games at home, four of them to sides who (on paper at least) are less capable than Middlesbro'. Personally, I find the prospect a bit distressing, especially if the visitors turn the crowd's anxiety against our patched up collection of loanees and misfits.

...and along a similar vein, only those with a strong stomach should check out this morning's interview on talkSPORT. Pretty gruesome I'm afraid. Talk about getting your excuses in early! And as for survival being a greater achievement than promotion last season? Just don't get me started. He seems determined to salvage some personal credit from what has been an unmitigated disaster for the rest of us. Typical really.
