Winning debut delights Jones

Cardiff debutant Kenwyne Jones was understandably overjoyed after marking his debut with the winning goal in the 2-1 victory over fellow strugglers Norwich.

The towering Trinidadian turned home shortly after half-time to set Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side on the way to the points just days after joining the Welsh club from Stoke in a straight swap with Peter Odemwingie.

Jones said afterwards: "We had to dig deep after Norwich scored so early - the team was a bit down but second half we came out and did the business.

"I'm really happy - first of all to be playing again - it was a pretty easy decision to come here when you want to play football. There are no 'ifs and buts' - when you want to play football, that's all it's about.

"Once you get good service you always back yourself to score and thankfully today it happened. We could have had a few more - but that's the anxiousness of the squad, not being able to get the goals flowing. But hopefully over the coming weeks we'll be able to fine tune that.

"We didn't start on the front foot and were a bit tentative - maybe it was being at home and feeling the pressure of trying to get three points - but we dug deep and got the goals.

"We're a few points from safety but we have quite a few games between now and the end of the season. We can enjoy tonight but then we have to start focusing on the next game because it's all important."
