HOWARD HAS MADE HIS POINT
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.”
