Stoke City manager Alex Neil:
"A point was probably a fair result but obviously we wanted to win it.
"We played extremely well in the past three games and all our chances today came in the first half.
"We had two or three really good chances to score but unfortunately didn't take any. If we take a chance then it becomes a different game
"We were wasteful with the ball more than what we've been, and that's the biggest thing I'll take from the game."
Cardiff City manager Erol Bulut.
"I'm really happy with my players, they've made big progress.
"It's not easy for many players here when we remember the last two years with what's happened and how we started pre-season and the first games.
"It's not easy to change everything in a positive way. Right now we've done it but we need to continue in that way and keep believing in our target.
"We knew that it was going to be a tight game because Stoke have had three great wins against great teams."
