We must try to bounce back - Jones

Cardiff boss Dave Jones has vowed that both he and the club will bounce back next season after their Wembley defeat to Blackpool on Saturday.

Another season in the Championship beckons beckons after his men failed to become the first team from Wales to reach the Premier League - losing a thrilling encounter 3-2.

"Everything's raw," said Jones. "I wish Ian and Blackpool all the best, while we have to take it on the chin and try to bounce back. We'll live to fight another day."

He added: "Ollie has got the prize. We went close but not close enough."

City at least have a brighter future to look forward to having fallen foul of the taxman this year, with a Malaysian consortium taking over the club and ploughing in funds.

Jones was recently linked with the vacant West Ham manager's job but claims he wants to be in charge of the Bluebirds next term.

"There is always speculation but my heart and my mind are towards Cardiff City - maybe the new board will want a change but at the moment I'm focused on going away on holiday for a few days and then starting again," he said.
