Cardiff Capitulate at Stoke

Cardiff Capitulate at Stoke

Cardiff City manager Dave Jones blamed 'five minutes of madness' as he saw his table-toppers crash alarmingly during an unbelievable second half period.

Jones was clearly disappointed with the goals conceded:
Disappointed Jones said:
'The first goal came from two bad decisions then a slip - there was no danger. Our own worst enemy was ourselves."
'Then, rather than regroup, we started flying in all over the place as if it was the last five minutes. It's frustrating because I didn't see it coming."
'I've got to take it on the chin.
Jones reserved much of his fury for Stoke loan player Lee Hendri who Jones felt grossly overacted to get Stephen McPhail red-carded.

Stoke`s Welsh manager Tony Pulis was understandably delighted with the result after an 'anxious` first half and saw his side stretch their winning run to 5 consecutive games with no goals conceded. Pulis vowed to keep giving it everything to move up the table:

'It's a great win because Cardiff are a strong side, but we have to keep our feet on the ground.'
