Doughty post-Reading | A first class performance

Alfie Doughty expressed his delight when speaking pitchside following the Bluebirds’ comeback victory at Reading on Saturday afternoon.

The 22-year-old netted his first goal for the Club to bring the encounter level, before Will Vaulks scored the winner.

“The performance was first class and the win demonstrated that,” began Alfie. “It’s a show of the character that we’ve got in the team because we bounced back straight away from last week with a victory.

“After their goal went in, we picked ourselves up and went again; we don’t give up and owed it to the fans to take three points.

“I got my first goal for the Club too and it’s just one of those feelings that sets you on the right path -  fortunately it led to us winning 2-1.”

City’s No.18 went on to describe his experience of being on loan at the Bluebirds, before looking ahead to the final six games of the season.

“I love it here and want to keep playing,” he continued. “I’ve loved every single second that I’ve been here, they’ve shown me respect and the whole dressing room is top class.

“We’re just aiming to finish as well as possible; we know how good we are, we’ve got to show how well we can apply pressure to every other side, and if we win the last six games who knows where we could end up.

“We’ve now won five games from six and it demonstrates how far we’ve come. There’s such a great morale within the Club and with the boys, and the sky’s the limit taking that into next season.”
