Cardiff City manager Dave Jones spoke of his confidence but nerves must have been jangling as non-league Chasetown took the lead. He told BBC Sport:


‘Everyone was here for the fairytale, we just happened to be the party-poopers.’

‘I am very honoured to be part of their history because it’s been a big day for them. That’s what all the headlines should be.’

‘Once we got control in the game it was always going to be how many, but their players were magnificent.’





Eccentric Chasetown boss Charlie Blakemore gushed with pride and hailed his non-league heroes:


‘I can be really proud of what we’ve achieved, even today we were still in it. Second half, they were passing it for fun but our lads just kept running and working.’

‘I’m the proudest man in the whole of the world today of my lads because they have been just awesome.’
