Manager Comments After Cardiff Beat Charlton

Manager Comments After Cardiff Beat Charlton

Cardiff City Dave Jones was satisfied with the result and disciplined performance as his side eased to a 2-0 win over Charlton. He told BBC Sport:


'I can't have many complaints from that game and once we got our noses in front we had to be professional and see the win out.'

'Tom Heaton's save from Luke Varney five minutes before our first goal was important.'

'The crowd wanted us to start flying forward when they went down to nine men, but we can't just go gung-ho and risk surrendering a win which happened to me once when I was Southampton boss playing against nine-man Derby.'

'I learned a lesson that day, so I shut up shot because I'd rather a half-entertaining comfortable 2-0 win than a thrilling 2-2 draw.'





Charlton Athletic manager Alan Pardew predictably rounded on the referee rather his side despite, even with 11 men, looked certain to go 2-0 down but for the foul on McCormack:


'It was two tough decisions by the referee and then game was over then. All we had left was character. When it as 11 v 11 we were the better side.'

'But the breaks didn't go our way and fortune didn't favour us. The referee's decisions were tough on us. We tried to keep our head as we could have lost more players. We were frustrated by the events that went on.'

'He booked people for innocuous challenges all day but you could say he was consistently bad. I will have a chat with the referee.'
