Cardiff v Norwich (manager comment)

Cardiff v Norwich (manager comment)

Cardiff City manager Dave Jones was calm after the game but bemoaned his sides inability to take their chances and close the game out:

'We dominated the opening period and should have been out of sight by the interval.'

'Last week we outclassed Birmingham for an hour and got nothing but today we have not been at our best yet have come away with a victory.'


Jones praised Norwich for their spirit in the second half but admitted his side had known that during the interval and been suitably prepared:

'They don't want to be dragged into the danger zone and so came out fighting in the second half.'

Norwich boss Peter Grant, the first manager to mastermind a win over City this season was disappointed and pointed to his sides woeful start:

'The slow start we had has probably given them a bit of a gee-up because in the opening 45 minutes we were awful. It's as poor as I've seen.'
