DAVE JONES brushed off the Jeremy Helan debate and claimed: “The real controversy was that we didn’t get a penalty.”
Sheffield Wednesday’s on-loan Manchester City winger was shown the first of his two yellow cards (but no red) for diving after tumbling in a ninth-minute challenge from Town right-back Jack Hunt.

“I don’t know about a booking, it was a penalty. That’s the controversy,” said Jones, whose side are unbeaten in four and 21st in the Championship.
“Helan was clipped and he’s not the type of lad to do that (dive). I think we should have won the game, that’s what I’m perplexed about.
“We should have had a penalty, and if we were at home we’d have got it.
“It was a big decision for the referee to make and he didn’t make it.”

Jones, whose side were beaten 3-1 by Town at Hillsborough back in September and lost seven on the trot before winning three in succession ahead of Saturday’s derby, added: “Huddersfield had just the one chance – the long ball near the end.
“Defensively we were solid and on the break we caused them all sorts of problems.
“I’m disappointed we haven’t got three points but I will take one.”
