Mandaric backs Owls boss Jones

Sheffield Wednesday chairman Milan Mandaric says Dave Jones has

his full support, despite the Owls sitting in the Championship’s

bottom three.

Wednesday, who are without a win since August, have lost seven

of their last eight games and currently sit in the relegation


“There is no reason to question Dave’s position, he is a very

good manager,” he told BBC Radio Sheffield.

“We have to try to get back on track and I believe we will.

Above all else we need to have patience and have trust in one


“I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t concerned by the run but I’m

not overly panicked by it. Everyone is working hard to correct the

mistakes that we’re making.

“We have bought a lot of new players in and it is just a matter

of time. Sometimes players don’t gel easily but if you’re going to

have difficulties it is better to have them now rather than later

on in the season.”
