Dave Jones says he’s disappointed with the media’s coverage in the build up to tomorrow’s derby game at Ninian Park.

The Cardiff City manager says the media are wrong to mention the flag incident as everyone hopes for a trouble-free derby – the last at Ninian Park unless we meet again in the play-offs.

At the end of the Football League Trophy win in the Millenium Stadium, Alan Tate celebrated with a flag which branded the words ‘F*** Off Cardiff’ and former player Lee Trundle wore a t-shirt with a picture of someone urinating on a Cardiff shirt.

Jones said mentioning that incident is crazy:

“I read the papers this morning and they are bringing up something that happened three years ago with Lee Trundle and the boy Tate.

“If we`re talking about trying to keep things calm then why bring things like that up. It`s crazy.

“We will go out in a professional manner and I am sure Swansea will be the same.”

“We want the points as much as Roberto will want them for his team.

“All the passion comes from the fans, but it is up to the players to go out and perform.

“In the last meeting it was a good game and if we can get the same quality as last time we played them without the sending-off then maybe it will be a good day for us.

It is another 90 minutes like any other, last week was a big game for us, so was the week before.

“It is about three points.


The game could potentially be make or break for both clubs. Defeat for either will dent their hopes of a play-off place while victory could give the winning side a big confidence boost for the remaining 5 games.
