Dale had only lost one of their previous nine league matches before the 2-1 home reverse to Accrington and are still flying high in third place in League Two. But Jones feels the result will serve to keep them grounded. He told the club's official website: "You have to look at the bigger picture and put it in perspective. We have played 14 games and we are third in the league. I would have took that if it was offered at the start of the season and I'm sure everyone connected with the club would too. "We lost on Saturday and maybe when we look at the bigger picture it could have done us the world of good. It has brought everyone back down to earth and shows there are no gimme's in football. "We have to roll up our sleeves and get on with the hard work again starting at Bournemouth on Saturday."
