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.
