SHEFFIELDWEDNESDAY boss Dave Jones be­lieves his faith in sur­prise loan sign­ing Steve Howard has been re­warded.

The 36-year-old tar­get­man scored just three goals for Hartle­pool be­fore Jones took him to a higher level on loan last month.

But Jones has been pleased with his im­pact, par­tic­u­larly in the goal­less draw with Black­pool on Tues­day.

“Ste­vie came here with a point to prove and I don’t think he’s let any­one down,” said Jones.

“The big fella was mag­nif­i­cent up front against Black­pool. He put a shift in and I think the fans will al­ways ap­pre­ci­ate some­one who does that.”
