Jones sacked by Sheffield Wednesday

Dave Jones has been sacked as Sheffield Wednesday manager.

The Owls fell to a third successive defeat as they went down 2-0 at Blackpool on Saturday and currently sit second from bottom in the Championship table, above Barnsley merely by goal difference.

Jones has led the South Yorkshire club to just one win from their 17 matches in all competitions this season and has now paid the price for that dismal record.

A statement on Sheffield Wednesday's official website read: "Dave Jones has been relieved of his duties as first-team manager with immediate effect.

"The club would like to thank Dave for all of his hard work and wish him well for the future.

"Sheffield Wednesday will be making no further comment at this time."
