Cardiff boss full of praise for Reds

Although his Cardiff side were pegged back in stoppage time by Lewis McGugan's goal, Jones said afterwards: "It was a hard-earned point against a very good side."

Having quietly crept into a challenging position, Forest's performance, live on national television, will have made a few more people aware of the side being built by Billy Davies.

Jones though knew exactly what kind of opposition his side would be facing, adding: "They have good shape and can catch you on a counter-attack."
