Sturrock seeks new Owls recruits

The Owls had been keen to keep Jones for longer than a month
Sheffield Wednesday boss Paul Sturrock hopes to bring in new players after being forced to send on-loan striker Kenwyne Jones back to Southampton.

"I've brought James Quinn in and hopefully we can get him up to speed, but the search goes on," Sturrock said.

"Joey O'Brien has a viral problem and Paul Heckingbottom misses the next game with suspension, so we're running on fumes as far as the squad's concerned.

"So it looks as if I might have to try to get a couple of loan players in."

Jones had scored seven goals in seven games during his month-long loan from Southampton - where he had been signed by Sturrock while he was Saints' manager.

"We've been very pleased with his contribution - we'd like to thank Southampton as he's been fantastic for us," Sturrock added.

Meanwhile, defender Heckingbottom was philosophical after earning himself a ban for picking up his fifth caution of the season.

Heckingbottom was booked for celebrating his stoppage-time equaliser in the Owls' 1-1 draw at Bournemouth.

"I'd been on four bookings for a while, so I've just got to look at it that it's out of the way now," he said.

"I was surprised, because the referee said I left the pitch, but I didn't go in the crowd or anything."
