Manager Comments After Cardiff Beat Banrsley
Cardiff City manager Dave Jones was pleased with his side's reaction but was disappointed with the way we allowed Barnsley back into the game. He told BBC Sport:
'I thought the first half we played some super football and could have made life easier for ourselves.'
'Second half, first 15 minutes we started sloppy and I think the first four or five passes we gave away, which gave them a little bit of momentum.'
'[It was a..] bad goal to give away - we tried to pinch it on the edge of the box and there was no need to do that, but I think we deserved the victory because of the chances we had and their keeper kept them in it for a long time.'
Barnsley boss Simon Davey chose to criticeise the referee rather than his own side's shortfalls. Whilst Cardiff City won a string of first half free-kicks, he and his side went about the game in the wrong way and paid the price:
'It's frustrating because I thought that the referee wasn't up to standard.'
'I can't say much but he told me I couldn't watch the match in the second half.'
'When there is a hostile crowd some people can get overawed and influenced for decisions they have to make for the home fans.'
