Thommo was just 'knackered'.

Byline: By Terry Phillips South Wales Echo

Steve Thompson was left out at Southampton because he was 'knackered'.

Manager Dave Jones said: 'Thommo wasn't dropped. He had divers boots on against Norwich City and he was simply knackered.

'He has been battered all season, he has run and chased all season. Sometimes I wish he would run and chase in the right areas, but he does a good job for the team.

'He knew why he wasn't starting. I tell my players the truth. If they are playing crap, I tell them they are playing crap.

'But that wasn't the case with Thommo and that goal against Southampton will help him. He needed a rest and came off the bench fresh.'
