Cardiff manager Erol Bulut:

"Maybe it was the best [performance of the season]. We have been really prepared. We had one day less recovery, but when we started the game I never felt we were going to lose it.


"From the first minute until the end, we could lead, we had chances. All the players were concentrated.

"When you play well and concede it's not good, but how my players started, they finished the game.

"Life is like this, you have to believe something. We believed today we were going to win this game and we did it."

Ipswich manager Kieran McKenna:

"That's football. We did really well in the second half to take control of the game, get the goal and put ourselves in a commanding position after 90 minutes.

"If the game finishes there we'd be talking about a really strong away performance, but it doesn't end there and in the last 10 minutes we didn't do what we needed to do.

"So it means we're on the wrong of a really disappointing finish but we've been on the other side plenty of times this season. Over the course of a season you're going to taste both sides of it. Today it went against us, but we'll be learn from that feeling today and we'll be stronger for it."
