“You can’t fault anything that we’ve done tonight.

“Tonight continued how we played in the second half against Barnsley, we carried that forward.

“We spoke about it over the last couple of days and watched the game again a couple of times and we kept on telling them to believe that what we’re doing is the right thing.

“We proved that tonight. We wanted a fast start to get at them and have a tempo to our play and we saw that early on.

“We had two shots cleared off the line in the space of 20 seconds and we were positive.

“We passed it quickly, created a lot of chances and when we had to dig in we did because Cardiff have got some strong boys and some good delivery.

“We mixed the game up well, I thought we played really well with the ball but as a team we were excellent without it.”
