Jones looking to add to squad

Published Add your comment

Cardiff boss Dave Jones is still looking to strengthen his squad, despite beating Norwich to go top of the npower Championship table.

The Bluebirds were pushed hard in their 3-1 win, although clinical finishing from Jay Bothroyd, Michael Chopra and a Peter Whittingham penalty secured three points for the promotion favourites. However, Bothroyd will miss next week's derby with Swansea after picking up a booking in the 63rd minute for a foul on Steven Smith.

Jones said: "We have just come through some tough games and we are looking strong and fit but I may change the way we play next week against Swansea as we will not have Jay up front."

He added: ``Craig Bellamy was feeling a little tired so we brought him off and Jason Koumas was not a bad replacement for him. I am always looking to strengthen the squad and January will be no different. If we can do it we will, but it is not a bad squad here at the moment.''
