"You always hope you're going to be top of the table but I'm not surprised to be there.

"We have belief and Cardiff is a great place to be because expectations are high.

"There is a feel-good factor but now we have to keep that going. We have had to work hard to come away with three points today and we have a tough game against Wolves next week.

"You saw what we were about today. With two or three minutes remaining we were still in their faces and our attitude and work-rate were fantastic.

"I have a squad of players that believes things are happening, I have supporters who believe things are going to happen, so why should I take all that away from them? We're not overconfident, we know there's a long way to go and some big, big games coming up, but today was an opportunity for us."

"They are the most professional team we have faced yet and the step up in class for us showed today.

"After they got a second goal they kept the ball really well and the truth is we never really looked like scoring. They looked a good side.

Now we have to bounce back at Derby, although that won't be easy."
