“It’s brilliant for me to even be considered as being a player who could become as good as Duncan Edwards was,” Jones said. “It is flattering and, for young lads like myself and my team-mates to be compared to great young players of the past, it is an amazing feeling.
People have told me about Duncan, facts and figures about him, but I obviously know what he means to this club. When you come into training in the morning, knowing that people are talking about you in the same breath as players of the Busby era, it is fantastic, but I can’t let it affect me. I have to play my own game and continue to do what I have been doing so far.”

“I was pleased with the performance from the lads - they battled really hard and played like real champions. A draw is probably a fair result. It’s a difficult place to come to.”
