Jones: Fans can stop hooligans

Published 1 Comments

Sheffield Wednesday manager Dave Jones has called on all decent football fans to "weed out" the minority of troublemakers among them to safeguard the future of the game.

Jones was targeted with vile chants from visiting fans during Friday night's volatile 1-1 derby draw with Leeds at Hillsborough, where Wednesday goalkeeper Chris Kirkland was attacked by one supporter who had run on to the pitch. Aaron Cawley, 21, from Cheltenham, has since been jailed for 16 weeks and handed a five-year football banning order.

Jones afterwards describing Leeds fans "as vile animals" while home supporters sang songs relating to the deaths of two Leeds fans in Turkey. The Owls boss said: "I've apologised to the good supporters and I think now we've got to draw a line under it, it's getting a bit tedious, but I will say again the fans in the end are the only ones who can stop it."
