LEWIS Buxton has been spotlighted by Dave Jones as one of the players who sets a fine example to others.

The Owls right back has impressed his manager on and off the field.

Jones explained: “Lewi has been a stalwart at this club. He might have a blip, but every players does.

“He is very good pro who works hard at his game - he’s probably the first one in for training and the last one out.

“Your good players are the reliable ones and the ones the kids will look up to.”

Buxton’c contract ends this summer and he has said he would like to stay.

But the Owls have yet to open negotiations with players about new deals.

Jones said: “We’ll sit down with Lewi when the time is tight. We’ve said that with other players who are out of contract.”
