"We went professionally to Chasetown and won; why we wouldn't go and do the same at Hereford is beyond me," said Dave Jones
"The FA cup is a one-off game, a chance for smaller clubs to beat the bigger clubs. It happens all the time and the competition is littered with that.
"But if we're there with the professional manner I expect of my team then it gives you a far greater chance of not ending up on the wrong end of a shock.
"Hereford have done brilliantly and Graham Turner has done a magnificent job being manager, chairman, owner.
"Whatever Graham will be telling his team, I'll be telling mine. We're in different leagues but we're both after the same thing."
Meanwhile Hereford bos Graham Turner knows his team will have to perform well to be able to beat Cardiff City.
"We've got to play out of our skins, there is no doubt about that," said Turner. "We've got to have everybody right on top of their game and hope that Cardiff are slightly below it.
"We know they've got some really good players. There are the likes of Steve McPhail, who is a cultured midfielder, while they've got Hasselbaink, who has played at the top level, and Joe Ledley, who is highly-rated.
"Cardiff are in a good seam of form at the moment too and picking up some very good results, but it is a great game for us.
"It is an opportunity for our players to perform on the big stage and pit themselves against a group of players who are in the Championship.
"If Cardiff come with their A-game then they'll probably beat us, but, if they don't, I think we've got half a chance."
