Cardiff manager Dave Jones and chairman Peter Ridsdale are understood to be meeting on Monday to discuss the matters behind Saturday's bust-up at Preston.

According to widespread reports, the pair became embroiled in a row in the visitors' dressing room at Deepdale following City's disappointing display which led to a 3-0 defeat.

Ridsdale is believed to have voiced his opinions on the performance, which did not go down well with Jones who is working under financial constraints that have prevented him from bolstering his injury-ravaged promotion hopefuls.

Jones refused to attend the post-match press conference and instead relayed quotes to the club's head of media to pass on to journalists.

Despite the defeat, Cardiff remain very much in the promotion hunt but must return to the High Court on March 10 after their winding-up order was adjourned for 28 days to raise the remaining £1.7million owed to Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs.

The Championship club last week sold land at the club's Cardiff City Stadium for the construction of a House of Sport which will raise £450,000 towards the deficit.
