Jones eyes play-off push

Cardiff City manager Dave Jones has not given hope of winning promotion to the Premier League after guiding his side to the FA Cup Final with a 1-0 victory against Barnsley on Sunday. Joe Ledley's early goal sealed the Bluebirds' place in next month's Final against Portsmouth, but Jones is keen to win a place in the Championship play-offs before his side returns to Wembley Stadium on May 17. He said: "My problem is getting them up and running again. We want to keep it going. We have a slim chance of the play-offs and, while we have, I won't let them rest. "It's not about turning up to the Final and being a bit part. We want to win it and why shouldn't we? I've said all season if we play to our potential we're a match for anyone. "I've been in finals, play-offs, won things as a manager, but I've never been in an FA Cup final and it's a nice feeling. "This ranks up there with anything I've achieved. It's something special. With everything that's gone on off the pitch it's a great credit to my players."
