The managers


Sheffield Wednesday's Danny Rohl:

This is a hard one to take today, everyone is really disappointed. Last week we scored two late goals and this week it has happened to us.

"We needed the second goal today but just couldn't get the final touch we needed.

"This was an unnecessary defeat; I think we controlled the game really well. For me, the performance was good but in the end it's about the result.

"In the first half we were moving the ball well and we scored a fantastic goal. Anthony is gaining more and more confidence every week and I'm really pleased for him.

"Cardiff were lucky and we were unlucky with the own goals today. In the second half they had two moments and scored two goals but these things can happen."

Cardiff's Erol Bulut:

"Karlan has such a high work rate and is one of the best players we have in the team. I'm pleased for him and his involvement in the first goal, which was vital for us.

"In the Championship you can play nice football but you have to run a lot and fight a lot. We've had a lot of games like that and today was another one of them.

"We struggled in the first half but we showed determination and we managed to stay in the game at 1-0. The second half was much better and I think we deserved the three points in the end.

"We had a meeting with the team in the week and I will keep what was said between me and the players but it was positive. We are always looking to move forward."
