"They could close that gap, there are a lot of games to go and nobody likes going to Ninian Park because it is always an intimidating atmosphere."
Dave Jones was pleased with his teams effort just a few days after drawing with Arsenal.
"I think considering our performance on Sunday, we showed a lot of grit and determination. We also played a lot of good football," he said.
"Full credit to the players because they kept going and they showed great tenacity and a willingness to run and chase and do the dirty part of football, which is always difficult after the kind of game we had on Sunday.
"It was a massive team effort. Everybody worked their socks off.
"I wasn't sure what kind of reaction we would get after Sunday but I need not have worried. I think our fitness coach deserves a lot of credit."
