Milan Mandaric is backing Dave Jones and his players to turn around the Owls’ fortunes, writes Paul Thompson.

The chairman told The Star that he is confident that the club will have enough quality to improve on their poor start.

He also revealed he held a long meeting with Jones yesterday about further signings: “Whether it is this week or next we are looking to bring in one or two strikers.”

He is looking for togetherness between the club and fans: “We have to support each other and we can’t panic. We have been in this difficulty before. We are going to get out of it.

“We appreciate the fans’ support. We also have to be patient. It hurt me big time when I saw those loyal supporters at Birmingham and we couldn’t deliver.

“I firmly believe we have good players; I ask them to be brave and turn things around; I am confident they will. They all know how important it is to supporters.

“I know when things are going wrong people look at the manager. I do think Dave needs the time. He needs to sort out the players. We have to give him support.

“I don’t like to change a lot. I like stability and to work things out.”
