Cardiff City manager Dave Jones was pleased with the result and the application shown by his players after the 2-1 victory over Bristol City. He told BBC Sport:



‘It certainly was a full-blooded, ding-dong derby match.’

‘We had a couple of situations where we out-numbered them and we didn’t take advantage. Then we lost our shape trying to get a second goal and we let them back into the game.’

‘Brooker’s effort, though, was off-side but our fight showed that our semi-final against Barnsley at Wembley is the furthest thing from our mind.’





Bristol City manager Gary Johnson was banished to the stands in a frantic second half period:


‘I was sent off for trying to get the ball back into play. The fourth official was holding on to the ball too long and all I did was try to grab it off him.’

‘It was a difficult afternoon all-round for us – because one minute we thought we had won it and then a few minutes later we conceded a penalty and went behind.’

‘We have to get over it.’
