Revenge not on agenda - Jones

28 November 2009 01:55
Cardiff's play-off hopes suffered a major blow on the penultimate weekend as Roy Keane inflicted a 3-0 defeat in his first match as Town boss, also spoiling the party for what was the last ever match played at Ninian Park.

The two sides meet this weekend for the first time since that fateful day but Jones wants his side to focus purely on getting the three points that would aid this season's promotion charge.

"I don't think it was a comprehensive victory (last season), the scoreline flattered them a little bit because in the end you start chasing the game," he said. "We were pushing for the play-off spots and probably left ourselves open.

"It was certainly a victory that didn't help us in what we were trying to achieve and that will still stick in the memory but you start talking about getting revenge and everything else and you lose sight of what you're actually trying to do. That's gone, we've got new players here and we're trying to get in that situation again."

Speaking about the pressure on his opposite number, Jones added: "Roy's gone in there and he's done a good job, sometimes when results don't go there's always speculation. They've got good players, he's brought good players in and he's probably trying to mould them into the team that he wants and that just doesn't happen straight away."
