Manager reaction to Blackburn defeat

Last updated : 22 October 2023 By Michael Morris

Blackburn manager Jon Dahl Tomasson:

"That was a brilliant win against a very good Cardiff side.


"When you have an international break, it can be difficult to get going again, but we got an excellent win at QPR before the break and we backed it up today.

"It was probably not the best game we've played lately and Cardiff are extremely difficult to beat, but we spoke at half-time about getting in the right areas and making runs in behind, and we scored a great goal like that so that was really pleasing to see."

Cardiff manager Erol Bulut:

"Whichever team scored first was going to win the game. Neither side created many chances.

"The referee said it [Goutas' disallowed goal] was offside, but the linesman didn't put his flag up. I was expecting something different… but at the end of the game, when I watched the replay, I could see it was offside.

"In the end, we have to create more chances. We need more communication and focus on the pitch."
