Cardiff City & Swansea Draw (Boss Comments)

Cardiff City & Swansea Draw (Boss Comments)

Cardiff City manager Dave Jones was pleased by the fight shown by his players as they twice came from behind in a game we hasd the better chances. Jones told BBC Sport:


'Two minutes to go it was a sloppy goal for us to give away, we were pressing to try and get the win and were caught with a sucker-punch.'

'But fantastic character from the players, they never gave up and came away with something from the game.'

'We deserved something and if we'd come away with nothing I would have been really down-hearted.'



Swansea manager Roberto Martinez was left funimg after seemingly winning the game only for Ross McCormack to win and convert an injury time penalty:


'If that's a penalty you're going to give six or seven penalties.'

'Both players are trying to get into a good position and it's a very, very soft penalty.'

'But disappointing because the result doesn't reflect the performance and to come here to Ninian Park is a big ask.'

I have a lot of respect for Martinez but he's losing it fast. OK so that penalty would only be given 5 out of 10 times - but he cant honestly think Swansea deserved to win?You cant just have the good luck Roberto!
