Managers Reaction 

Birmingham’s Lee Bowyer: “We switched off at the end and got done. We know that’s their strength, they’re a big side. A lot of their goals this season have been scored from set pieces. We worked hard on it and just got done at the end. Did they [Cardiff] deserve a point at the end? I don’t think so. But you have to give them credit, they kept pushing and pushing and didn’t give up. We should have finished the game way before that. We missed too many chances again.”

Cardiff’s Steve Morison: “You come off at Stoke when you’re 3-0 down and you’re back to 3-3, and today we’re 2-0 down and come back to 2-2 with a goal in the last minute, and there weren’t happy faces in the dressing room because we know that can’t be the norm. We can’t keep giving ourselves a mountain to climb, but you can’t fault the heart, the character, the attitude, the application. We could have rolled over and let it go.”
