Jackett's midfield boost

18 Oct 2006 - 10:31:34

Swansea boss Kenny Jackett heaped praise on midfielder Owain Tudur-Jones after he marked his return from a long-term knee injury with a goal in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy win at Walsall.

Jones fired the Swans ahead in the 90th minute at the Bescot Stadium only for the League Two leaders to force an equaliser through Darren Wrack in injury time.

However, the much-changed Welsh outfit progressed to the next round courtesy of a 4-3 penalty shoot-out win, leaving Jackett pleased with Jones and a number of fringe players who did their first-team chances no harm.

He said: "He came back very strong. He drove the side on very well.

"I'm delighted to have him back, not just for his goal but for his presence and attitude in the side."

He added: "We've got a result against somebody who's got 31 points from 14 games and who've won all their seven home games without conceding a goal.

"And it was interesting for me because I made a lot of changes."
