Jones: They should be banned

Published Add your comment

Sheffield Wednesday manager Dave Jones has called for Leeds fans to be banned from "every away ground" after trouble marred his side's 1-1 draw against Neil Warnock's team at Hillsborough.

Jones' goalkeeper, Chris Kirkland, appeared to be punched by a Leeds fan who entered the field in the wake of Michael Tonge's 77th-minute equaliser, while unsavoury chanting also marred the night.

A large number of the Leeds fans housed in the Leppings Lane End sang about the child abuse charged which were dropped against Jones in, while former broadcaster Sir Jimmy Savile, now the subject of a similar police investigation, seemed to be heralded in song.
