Highlights and reaction from The Ricoh

Last updated : 18 September 2021 By Michael Morris

Coventry's Mark Robins: "First and foremost, a really good performance. You know what is coming and you have to deal with it and it is really difficult to deal with. They make it so difficult for you defensively and to try and keep them out is a really tough task so to keep a clean sheet is outstanding.


"The goal we created and Viktor Gyokeres took was outstanding and, on the back of that, the way we tried to play, and continued to play, was good. The movement, the way we moved the ball, the vision, the awareness, and the passing, was outstanding. The only blight was the sending off at the end. I'm gutted for him because he is so het up in trying to see the game out and going to get a tackle in."

Cardiff's Mick McCarthy: "Disappointing result, disappointing performance. They were the better side and deserved to win. All I would say about our side is they stuck at it and we had our chance, they had more than us, we had our chance near the end, a couple of them, but we get beat.

"There was some really good defending by the back three there to stop them getting another goal so they deserved to win and there's no doubt in my mind about it."
