Manager Comments After South Wales Derby Draw

Manager Comments After South Wales Derby Draw

Cardiff City manager Dave Jones was satisfied to come away from the game against Swansea City with a point after playing much of the second half with 10 men. Jones told BBC Sport:

'It took us 20-odd minutes to get going. Their first goal was about a yard offside.'

'We got the equalizer and to come out and get 2-1 up 11 v 11 we looked like we were starting to gain control. I think it was a good point earned going down to 10 men.'

'It's a great advert for Welsh football. There's something for both sets of fans to be proud of.'

Swansea City manager Roberto Martinez was frustrated his side could not find the winner:

'We created enough chances to win the game. The first goal we conceded was our own fault and the penalty as soft.'

'I'm not pleased with the result, I'm pleased with the performance and the way the players reacted. For me, it's two points dropped.'
