Jones: Old club makes no difference

Dave Jones finds himself facing his former employers when Wolves visit Ninian Park tomorrow's 5th round tie.

"It makes no difference to me that we're up against my former club," said Jones,
"For me it will be another football game that I will be trying to win."

The home tie against another Championship club offers a real chance of progress to the 6th round. The last time Cardiff came close to that was in 1994 when Luton came to Ninian Park and spoilt the party.

The previous occasion that Cardiff did make the 6th round was in 1927, the Bluebirds then went on to win the trophy becoming the only non English side ever to do so.

"It's a good opportunity to get to the Quarter Finals as Wolves are in the same division as us," Jones continued. "They will be thinking the same.

"If we had drawn one of the big guns like Manchester United, Liverpool or Chelsea, we'd have wanted to be away for financial reasons. But if you get a club from the same division then you want to be at home, and we've got that.

"They beat us at our place this season but we won at Molineux last season so it's a 50-50 game. We will have to be at our best. They had a great result at Watford in the last round, so they'll be buzzing."
