"We should have won the game," said Dave Jones. They've not caused us any problems today whatsoever. Even the goal we should not have conceded and that's lack of concentration at the back.

"We'd made the game easy by working really hard and you've got to keep the backdoor shut, but that's what happens at all levels of football.

"We gave them hope and we gave them something to hang on to, which they did."

While disappointed with the result Jones was full of praise fro youngster Aaron Ramsey.

"The kid is going to be a special player, we have something special on our hands, we all know that, and I thought he was superb," added Jones.

"He will get better and better as he starts to develop. This season is a massive learning curve for him. He will make mistakes, it is about how he handles that.

"But we have no problems with him. He is coming along very nicely."

Wednesday boss Brian Laws was happy to see his ide pick up three crucial points as they moved out of the bottom three.

"It was a pleasing win, let me tell you that. Just for the simple reason that it's given us a huge lift looking at the table and seeing us out of the bottom three for the first time for a while.

"This is what we've got to do. Each step we take has to be a big step and certainly three points is a big step for us today.

"Every game becomes a cup final and we're going to need a lot of help. The supporters were tremendous the way they got behind the team. They never stopped.

"The fact that the players are giving everything they've got and are not shirking anything, I think the fans appreciate that."
