Cardiff 1-0 Hull (Manager Comments)
It was all about the result for Cardiff City manager Dave Jones as he watched his tired side overcome promotion chasing Hull City courtesy of a superb early strike from midfielder Stephen McPhail. Jones told BBC Sport:
'It was always going to be difficult and an early goal helped. We knew that because we looked tired.'
'The problem is we were looking to put a fresh player on, but we were putting a tired player on.'
'But I can't fault them.'
Hull City manager Phil Brown was disappointed in how his side handled the game:
'It was very frustrating, particularly in the first half, and their goal wasn't even a chance. This was a big opportunity for us but we missed it.'
'In the second half we had plenty of opportunities to get the ball into the danger area but the spark was missing.'
