Cardiff's Erol Bulut:
"After a few weeks of not winning points we were disappointed, so the three days off that we gave the players refreshed our team.
"Everybody came back with a clear mind and an analysis about themselves and about what they need to do to play much better.
"I think the whole team did really good work today. When you do your job well as a team, it makes it easier."
Watford's Valerien Ismael:
"There's a big frustration tonight. I have the feeling that over 90 minutes, we should win the game. Yes, our opponents were disciplined, but they had one shot on target and scored the goal.
"It's painful to lose at home again because we want to give something to our fans. This is a setback for us because we need to use the home games to be strong. So today for me is a tough one to take.
"We said to the players at half-time. 'You need to step up and believe in yourselves because I believe in you and we believe in you'.
"After the substitutions it was much better. We dominated the ball and we created chances, but in the final third it's more about desire.
"We need to be nasty in the opponents' box to get in front of defenders, to make sure you are always there."
