Jones stands by troubled Cardiff

Last updated : 30 January 2010 By BBC Sport

And Jones has called on supporters to get behind the team at home to Doncaster Rovers on Saturday.

"We're all angry and we're all disappointed that we're not going to get what we want," he said.

"But that goes from the bottom to the top. It's difficult times at the moment.

"We're all in this together and that's what the players have said.

"If I promise my players I'm in it with them and I walk away because things have started to go wrong, what does that make me?

"I've never walked away from a fight in my life which is well-documented.

"If I walk away because things have started to go wrong what would the chairman, the board, the fans and most importantly the players think?

"Anyone who doesn't want to be in it should walk away and will go and fight somewhere else.

"But the problem is if it happens somewhere else, what do you do? Walk away from that?

"Eventually you will walk away from a lot of jobs because football is littered with problems at the moment."

Jones accepts the situation could have been worse if Cardiff were languishing at the foot of the Championship.

But they go into Saturday's game in fourth and he wants supporters to focus on backing the team to get three points.

"I felt, including the chairman, that the money that was coming in, plus the other investors and the other bits and bobs that he's been promised along the way, would all arrive and everything would run as we wanted it.

"It didn't and the board have made the decision that the money that has come in and other bits of money would have to be used for other things.

"What can we do? Get on with it and that's what we are doing."

Jones says he understands the ill-feeling towards chairman Peter Ridsdale who made an apology on Thursday.

But he wants to see a positive atmosphere at the Cardiff City Stadium for the visit of 12th-place Doncaster.

"I'm asking the fans to turn up and get behind the team and support them," he added.

"We are there to try and get three points and want to keep our run going."
