Jay Bothroyd has credited Sheffield Wednesday boss Dave Jones with convincing him to sign for the Championship team on loan. The 30-year-old, who played under Jones for three years at Cardiff, joined the Owls from Queens Park Rangers until January on Friday.

"I'm back with Dave Jones and I'm looking forward to it," he told BBC Radio Sheffield.

"I know him well and he knows how to get the best out of me." He added: "It's going to be a good test but I just want to start playing football again and get scoring goals.

"It's a massive club and they're striving to get to the Premier League."

Bothroyd, capped once by England in 2010, is confident Wednesday have the squad to put another unbeaten run together.

"It wasn't the best game at the weekend, I suppose we didn't really get going," he continued.

"They'd been on a great run and I know a few of the boys here and I think we can get on that kind of run again."
