Dave Jones is an experienced manager who will back himself to get the best out of players.

So when an opportunity arises to bring in someone who has served him well in the past yet has since lost his way, he is going to take it if he is confident that the player is still good enough.

Enter Roger Johnson....a fine centre half in his time at Cardiff, a big-money buy for both Birmingham and Wolves, and still only 30.

Johnson would have been at Hillsborough more than a year ago, had Wolves not turned down an approach by Jones for him.

So it is not exactly a panic move by the Wednesday boss to bring in the defender, even though he has not played in any games since the end of last season.
