Cardiff deny final distraction

23 Apr 2008 - 08:52:32

Cardiff City's assistant manager Terry Burton dismissed claims that thoughts of next month's FA Cup Final were responsible for Tuesday's 3-0 defeat at Wolves.

The Bluebirds were soundly beaten at Molineux in a match which manager Dave Jones missed due to illness.

"Of course it's there and you can't take that away," admitted Burton. "When the players go out on the pitch are they going out there and thinking of the FA Cup final?

"I would have to say no, they are thinking about what they would have to do to try to win that game."

Burton also revealed Jones didn't travel with the Cardiff squad as he remains troubled by a chest infection.

"He's not been well for about five or six days. He's had a chest infection, a bad throat and sounded awful," he added.

"He's kept battling it and kept fighting it. I think yesterday his temperature was up and he needed a couple of days away from it."
