Jones retains Cardiff hope

Cardiff City boss Dave Jones has urged his players to continue picking up the points after keeping their automatic promotion hopes alive with a 4-1 victory over Derby County. The Bluebirds moved up to fifth place in the Championship table following Wednesday night's victory at Ninian Park. They are now eight points adrift of second-placed Birmingham City in the final automatic spot with a game in hand. "It's about just keeping going," Jones told the club's official website. "It's one of our games in hand so it was important to get maximum points to keep that dream alive. "While it's still possible we have to keep hammering away but tonight it was just important to get the three points. "I would have taken a 1-0 but I think we needed a second or maybe a third because we weren't playing and passing as well. "But as I said, when you've got the players that we've got here, and when they are in front of goal they can be quite clinical and they certainly were today."
