Cardiff City manager Dave Jones was satisfied with his team’s second half turnaround and beleived his side deserved the points:


‘In the first half we looked tired after a lot of games and lacked the necessary cutting edge.’

‘The second half was about squeezing the game by that extra 20 yards. When we did that we caused them all sorts of problems, and when they were in possession we put them under pressure.’

‘We grew in confidence, especially after the equaliser, and I felt we could have made it easier with a third.’







Preston boss Alan Ervine was left to rue his side’s missed chances and reflect on a poor second half for his struggling side:


‘It was a massive disappointment, especially after an encouraging first half. I spoke to them before the game about getting a good start and we got that.’

‘I thought we dominated the first half, certainly had the best chances, and we could have done with that second goal.’
