Bristol City boss Sean O'Driscoll credited Cardiff City following Saturday's 2-1 severnside victory.
"You always have a grumble about the result If you lose, but Cardiff are a good team which is why they are where they are," said the Bristol boss.
"When you have players like Fraizer Campbell and Craig Bellamy up front, then you always going to have trouble with their pace. Their movement was good, their interchanging was good – we have had to try and adjust on several occasions to cope with them.
"But credit to our lads – they stuck to it, they stuck together. We get a goal back at the death, however it comes, and if we hadn’t given away a poor second goal, we might have had a point. But I’ve no complaints about the first Cardiff goal because it was a class finish from Campbell. Can we stay up? I’m not concerned about our position at the moment, the lads are responding well, they believe they can do it, so what will be will be."
