Sheffield Wednesday boss Dave Jones basks in all the glory
Sheffield Wednesday boss Dave Jones joked he deserved all the credit for masterminding Leicester City's downfall at the King Power Stadium.
Jones' relegation battlers nullified City's attacking threat and grabbed a shock victory through substitute Connor Wickham's 70th-minute strike.
Jones said his game-plan worked to perfection.
"We know what Leicester are trying to do and it shows you how far we have come as a football club because, when we played them in November, they were far the better team and we had some catching up to do," he said.

"I think we were a bit naive earlier in the season in what we were doing, and it took us a little time to adapt. We have lost that naivety and become a bit more solid.
"We had a game-plan (against City). We didn't switch off at all. Our two centre-halves were magnificent and everyone was putting their bodies on the line.
"This isn't the easiest place to come. I have had joy here in the past, and hopefully that run will continue because the lads had to put a shift in against a very good side."
Jones said match-winner Wickham was a major doubt for the game, but he was always going to start with just one striker against City.
"Connor took a bang in training and it was a big decision whether I used him," he said.
"It was a collision in training, a clash of boots, and we did fear the worst. But he had an X-ray which showed no break. He said he was tender but was okay.
"I just needed to flood the midfield and get a grip on the game, and that is what the lads did. I was always going to have to sacrifice one of the forwards and Leroy Lita had the fresher legs.
"It is not just about Connor. To come here and play as well and limit them to a long-ball game in the end is credit to everyone."
