Jones not jolly after win
Dave Jones criticised his Sheffield Wednesday players despite their 4-2 victory at Oldham in the Capital One Cup first round.
The newly-promoted npower Championship side trailed 2-0 to goals from Jordan Slew and Jean Yves Mvoto and Nejc Pecnik missed a penalty to prompt stern words from Jones at the break
Jermain Johnson reduced the arrears and fellow former Oldham man Chris O'Grady came off the bench to bag a brace before Michail Antonio's fine late strike.
Jones said: "In the Championship we won't win many games from 2-0 down, if any at all. It's a hard league and, although we won, there's still a lot of work to do.
"Maybe some of the players think they've arrived, but for 45 minutes they got their backsides slapped. We didn't close down, tackle or pass the ball. For 45 minutes we were well and truly out of it.
"Some words were said at half-time and they'll remain private, but I asked them nicely to go out and start playing like Sheffield Wednesday. They all deserve credit for coming back like that, but it's the first half I remember. It was by far the worst we've played in my time at the club and I was surprised by it. They responded to what we said but, believe me, I'm still spitting feathers."
