However, until his appearance on Tuesday Jones had only played twice

He had a mixed night against Rovers.
Jones saved Ayegbeni Yakubu's penalty with his first touch but was at
fault for conceding another spot kick from which Yakubu equalised. His
blushes were spared when Andy Carroll headed home in stoppage time to

Jones said the penalty save was
in memory of his son Luca, who died from leukaemia in November. His
girlfriend gave birth to a son Nico Luca a week ago.
