Much-needed win delights Jones

Sheffield Wednesday manager Dave Jones welcomed his side's first win of the season as they produced an accomplished display to comfortably beat Reading.

A Matty Fryatt double and further strikes from Michail Antonio and Connor Wickham, as well as Reading defender Sean Morrison's own goal, gave the Owls a 5-2 victory.

Jones believes Wednesday's first triumph of the Sky Bet Championship campaign is just desserts for their hard work this term.

He said: "It's not as if we've been playing badly, we just needed to get a break and I feel it's the reward for the players for the hard work that they've been doing.

"We just needed to turn the draws into wins and everything that could go for us went for us and these are the days you've got to enjoy.

"The lads that we've brought in late are getting fitter and stronger but we've had to do that during our own game time. All the hard work that everyone's put in has come to fruition.

"It could have been 5-5 in the first half and it could have been 12-8 in the second, with the chances we had and they had. It was such an open game but with our attacking prowess throughout the game, we were always a threat.

"It's been coming, all that frustration and bad luck came good. I can't fault the players and they should enjoy it, because on Monday we'll batter them for the mistakes they did make."
