"Sometimes substitutions have no effect, but today they worked out.

"Our second goal was an excellent counter-attack and probably the best worked goal we have scored for some time. I felt we were better in the first half, but had nothing to show for it.

"Paul Parry has done very well for us since coming from non-league football and John Robinson produced quite a few moments of quality, but until that penalty we were not looking as though we could score.

"I thought they would play five in midfield when I saw the team sheet and it was a surprise when defender Graham Branch played up front.

"I am very pleased with Andy Campbell as in the 15 minutes he was on the field he showed what a great player he is."

Stan Ternent

"We deserved a point and although we were anxious, we were doing the right things until the penalty.

"It has been a frustrating afternoon and this now means that our next two games are massive for us.

"We were tentative, but Cardiff were no better than us and the penalty gave them a massive lift.

"If we win our next match we will have 50 points and a game in hand and one more victory should then see us safe.

"If we don't do it, the players only have themselves to blame as they have enough ability."
