Dave Jones was incensed by the stoppage-time equaliser that kept his Sheffield Wednesday side in the thick of the Championship relegation battle.

The Owls boss was convinced goalkeeper Chris Kirkland had been fouled by Marvin Elliott as he came off his line to intercept a cross.
Sam Baldock volleyed home the loose ball to give bottom club City a point they deserved and Jones could hardly contain his anger with referee Darren Deadman.
"It was a forearm smash by Elliott. Anywhere else on the pitch it would have been a free-kick," he said.
"We had taken everything City could throw at us and all you ask is a fair deal from the match officials.
"We have had trouble with this referee before. If he had done his job we would have been going home with three points, but I get tired of saying that sort of thing.
"We scored a great goal and Chris Kirkland has hardly had a shot to save. I feel so frustrated for my players.
"The relegation battle is going down to the wire. But we already knew that before this game."
