Dave Jones has backed his Cardiff players to win the Championship play-offs and secure promotion to the Premier League.

The 54-year-old, who guided Wolves into the top flight via the 2003 play-offs, saw the Bluebirds narrowly pipped to the second automatic promotion place by Norwich but believes his side will take advantage of their second chance.

"We still have a great chance to get promoted and I believe that we have what it takes to make the most of the opportunity," Jones told the clubs official website.


"We know what we have to do and the squad holds no fear going to Reading. In fact, we're all really looking forward to the next two games and are very confident in what we can achieve.

"We'll go there in the right frame of mind knowing that over two legs we have a great chance if we play to our strengths, of which we have many.

"The players, staff and everybody at the club are working hard to achieve our promotion goals."
