Manager reaction as Cardiff enjoy a late win over Preston


Steve Morison:

"We deserved our goal, we were excellent in the first half... the second half was scrappy.

"They scored the penalty but our subs came on and showed great heart and character to help us over the line. I thought everyone was excellent for us today, it was a real team effort.

"We will take that, we get a good buzz from winning and we have got Liverpool in the next round.

"But now we box this off and focus on Blackburn in the league in our next game."

BBC Highlights (UK) -

Ryan Lowe:

"We played well in spells, but we didn't have the finishing edge and paid the price with four minutes to go.

"It should have finished 1-1 and gone into penalties.

"We had dealt with their long balls really well all game, but we lacked concentration and got caught out.

"It would have been nice to have made the next round but we are not going to win the FA Cup so it's back to Championship football."
