Dave Jones wins Manager of the Month Award

Last updated : 31 January 2008 By Michael Morris
A January schedule that has seen Cardiff City win 5 from 6 games and draw the other after conceding a late equaliser has been enough to win Dave Jones the Manager of the Month Award for January. City's 4 league games produced a 10 point haul and we won through two rounds of the FA Cup as well.

Jones beat off competition from Bristol City's Gary Johnson, Owen Coyle of Burnley and Glen Roeder of Norwich to take the trophy.

"Football management is a precarious job and this award shows how things can change very quickly," said Jones.

"We are in a business that is emotionally run and sometimes people's emotions run higher than they should.

"Thankfully we've turned it around and everyone loves us again but it has been a team effort, the camaraderie here is great.

"Awards are always satisfying and it is something to show the boys for all of their hard work.

"The award is a big pat on the back for the team but it is early days, we want to win trophies at the end of the season."
