Cardiff manager Neil Warnock said:
"It was never going to be pretty. The pitch was terrible, the wind was bad, it was the coldest day of the year, the ball was lively and it was a derby.

"We said at half-time it would be a sloppy goal, make sure we don't make a mistake because it's a mistake which will cost the game.

"We're delighted to come out of it with three points. I thought we shaded it. I thought we had the better opportunities but it was always going to be close.

"And it was great to come out with another clean sheet - that was our target we set at the start of the season, 16 clean sheets. It's a great achievement."
