Football Results

Stoke continued their poor run of form as they produced one of the narrow football results of the weekend in the Championship. They have now failed to win a game in their last nine since beating Swansea at the start of February. Cardiff on the other hand has taken 10 points from their last four games. Lewis Baker gave the visitors the lead in the 23rd minute before Tommy Doyle equalized in the 39th minute. Jordan Hugill completed the comeback by scoring the match-winner in the 43rd minute.

Managers Reaction 

Cardiff’s Steve Morison: “When we started this whole process, we were in the bottom three and they were in the play-offs. We are now level with each other on points. I’m as proud as punch. It has been a really tough seven weeks but it ended so well and I’m really pleased. We didn’t deserve to be 1-0 down but in the end, we got our rewards. They gambled in the second half and committed more men forward and our defenders had to defend for their lives. That put us under pressure but I still think we had the better chances in the second half.”

Stoke’s Michael O’Neill: “We didn’t play well enough and didn’t deserve to take anything from the game, despite going ahead with a good goal. We were a bit fragile. You have to get to half-time and defend your lead and we didn’t do that. We were 1-0 up with six minutes to play in the first half and we went in behind – that epitomizes where we are at the moment. Straight balls down the pitch, there wasn’t any real guile about it but the pace of Jordan Hugill and Mark Harris caused us problems. We had a lot of the ball but our quality in the final third was poor.”
