Cardiff boss Dave Jones is hoping the club can resolve their unpaid tax bill this week.

The Bluebirds are due in the High Court on Wednesday to face a winding-up order over money owed to HM Revenue and Customs, but Jones has paid tribute to the way his players have coped in such a difficult time.

"It will be a big boost if the tax bill can be sorted out on Wednesday and then everybody can relax and concentrate on the football," Jones told the club's official website.

"I know the chairman and the board are working really hard on it. We can't really influence it apart from winning matches and influencing people who might want to come in and buy the club."

Jones added: "There's a good camaraderie about the place and they knew they had to pull something out of the bag on Saturday. This month will be very challenging for the players here. We may get one or two back from injury, but that still won't be enough.

"It's going to be a tall order for everybody. But we're up for the fight and the players are giving everything they've got. If they continue to do that, there'll be no complaints from me."
