Cardiff City Boss: Think, Eat & Live Football' !

Cardiff City manager Dave Jones is bracing himself for a busy and tense end to the se4ason with the Bluebirds looking to get back on track after successive defeats and reclaim the automatic promotion position we have occupied for long periods this season.

With 10 games to go, Jones is looking to avoid any un-necessary distractions and concentrate entirely on getting the results we need to achieve promotion. DJ spoke to BBC Sport:

'We probably felt a little bit hard done by not picking up the points that we probably deserved on the performances.'

'The morale in the camp is still good although everybody is very disappointed.'

'We have got some really long trips, so it's about staying fit and staying strong. No distractions from anybody whatsoever. You have to think, eat and live football for the next 10 games.'



ones is the sort of manager who prefers to downplay defeats as 'part of the game', he rarely gets carried away with hype and clearly tries to foster a balanced mentality within the squad.

That personality and mentality has served us well over the past five years, but we do have longstanding frailties within the squad and have fallen short of expectations on a number of occasions.

The focus, morale and determination Dave Jones is adept at maintaining will go a long way and the squad remain in a promising position. However, the extra level of passion and frenzied determination has been short at times - that can be provided by the fans.

With Cardiff City fans and Dave Jones providing different but equally essential ingredients, Cardiff City have the entire package. When you look at the squad, manager and fans - this is a club ready for a chance at promotion, there may never be a better chance at it but while the finger pointing and blame culture exists - we'll always fall short.

A win against Barnsley can make huge strides and as we edge ever closer to the end of the season, everyone needs to pull together. Bothroyd, Bellamy and co have the chance on Sunday - we must take it.
