Dave Jones has been sacked as manager of Sheffield Wednesday.

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.

"We must fight and scrap" - Dave Jones

Sheffield Wednesday's under-fire manager Dave Jones insists his side can get out of relegation trouble - but only if they "fight and scrap".

The Owls - who travel to Blackpool tomorrow - are currently 22nd in the Championship.

Jones, who was speaking at his weekly news conference, said some of his players need to take a long look at themselves, instead of blaming others.
