Sheffield Wednesday boss Gary Megson has accused players of having a "blame culture" and wants them to take responsibility for poor form.

The Owls have not won on their travels in over six months and were trounced 5-1 at Stevenage on Tuesday.

Megson wants his players to improve their own performances rather than look to pass the buck.

"I put the team out and dictate the way I want us to play. I didn't see any of those things against Stevenage. They must not turn round and say it's my fault - this blame culture has been going on for a very long time," he told the Sheffield Star.

"I've got to lift them, but they've got to lift themselves because they get well paid. If you did your job as badly as they did you'd lose it. So would every single person in any walk of life. The footballers have to accept that's not good enough.

"It wasn't acceptable, not just as footballers but as people. The people who are in the stands have the honesty to turn up, so the least they can expect is that we have a battle and a scrap. We might play badly, but we shouldn't just be abdicating responsibility and hoping that somebody else takes the blame."
