Sheffield Wednesday manager Dave Jones blamed referee Simon Hooper after his side slipped to a 1-0 defeat at Wolves.

The former Wolves boss was enraged by Hooper's decision not to award Michail Antonio a second-minute penalty when he was bundled over by Stephen Ward.

And to add insult to injury, Hooper gave Bakary Sako a second chance to take the free-kick that earned Wolves their fourth straight win.

Jones said: "You need a bit of help along the way and the match hinged on two decisions. In my book the referee cocked both of them up. He has got to give a penalty. It is a clear-cut penalty. Antonio was clipped.

"As for the free-kick, the referee told me that he did tell the player to wait for the whistle and if he did then he made the right decision.

"But I have watched the video over and over again and I didn't see it. If he told the lad to wait for the whistle why did he do it?

"The rules say that if the referee has told him to wait for the whistle then he gets a second chance. I am debating whether he was told to wait for the whistle. My players didn't hear it.

"I think he (the referee) was too busy arguing with the wall to get it back. We feel hard done by and Wolves should feel lucky they came away with three points."
