'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Cardiff City Capitulate at PNE (Boss Comments)

Cardiff City manager Dave Jones was left fuming by repeated defensive failures but kept his anger in check. He told BBC Sport:


"I didn't see that coming, we just didn't turn up and failed to do what we have been doing all season."

"We tried to play off-side for the third goal and it was ridiculous position and the ball should have to be cleverer than that to break us down and then at 3-0 down, we were chasing the game."

"Full credit to Preston but they didn't have to work too hard to get the result as it looked like we went through the motions in the second-half."




Preston North End boss Alan Irvine was happy as the proverbial Larry and gushed:

"The play-offs are still not in our hands. We are waiting to see what happens. We have kept ourselves in with a chance."

"Before the game the gist of my talk to them was that it's now or never, that they had to go out and do the job."

"But I certainly didn't see this coming. I don't think anyone would have imagined that happening for a moment."

I suppose you can just put this one down to a bad day in the office . . . .not good for your play off hopes though.
