"The goals were excellent, but we could have had more. I'm delighted that the hard work and good play was finished off well with the goals as well.

"We kept going even at half-time at two-nil up. We combated them well, played in between the lines and put them to the sword in the second half.

“From the first minute to the ninetieth our team gelled today,” he continued. “We worked very hard in terms of winning second ball and after that we made a lot of good decisions, caused them a lot of different problems and were clinical in front of goal. I asked them to be clinical when we got into good areas, because we weren’t on Tuesday night against Watford.”

He added: "We’ve got to keep trying to make it a difficult place for teams to come. We are looking to base ourselves on our home form to begin with and build on that. We get twenty plus thousand people coming here every week and they’ve been fantastic in their support for myself and our team. 

Burnley caretaker manager Terry Pashley said: "The goals we conceded were self-inflicted.

"After the first goal we never really recovered. We tried to be positive in the second half to try and get the next goal, but we conceded a third.

"It was poor decisions in open play and we got punished. But we all have to be accountable.

"Cardiff are top of the league and it's no fluke - they are playing consistent football. It was a tough afternoon for us."
