Highlights and reaction from The Riverside

Last updated : 25 October 2017 By Michael Morris


Garry Monk: "It's clearly a frustrating period for us. We knew going into the game it wasn't going to be one with a lot of chances because of the way Cardiff set up, so we knew we were going to have to show patience. We were in the ascendancy and if anyone was going to win, it looked like us, so it was a really harsh result. But that's the period we're in.

"We understand the fans' frustration, but what's very clear is that we stick together. It's easy to lose focus on what the players have done really well, even today there were a lot of good things. We're getting punished for errors, but we know the good things we're doing will get us through.

Neil Warnock: "We were aiming to be in the top six at the end of October but we're setting our sights higher now. I'm too long in the tooth to get carried away, though. The players gave me everything and I couldn't have asked for more. The players missed a few chances and left me sweating a bit at the end. I should have been sat there with a cigar on at the end, but it wasn't quite like that.

"I got the response after the defeat last week, but this league is like that. That's why I love it because you don't know what's round the corner. You don't get carried away too much when you have a good run or a bad run. We've had a couple of blips, but you're going to get that. We're a genuine bunch of lads, but you get what you pay for and we are limited in certain areas. I'm proud of their never say die attitude though."
