Leandro Bacuna’s first goal for Cardiff City with 11 minutes played proved to be enough for City to take all three points.

“I’m delighted for the players,” began Neil following the final whistle. “I said to them that we’ll be better and I promise that, but if we have to roll our sleeves up and battle, we’ll show that we can do that also.

“Sometimes you need a little bit of class and Gary Madine with his back-flick and Leo’s [Bacuna] run gave us that moment, so I’m delighted with the end product from that.

“It wasn’t a classic, in some ways it was a typical, scrappy Tuesday night Championship football match and I’ll take that.

“I think everyone associated with the Club can enjoy that result.”

The Gaffer went on to reveal what he looks for in his players, before giving a squad update ahead of the coming busy period.

“It’s about attitude, application and desire to want to play for this great Club and players can say what they want, but when as new manager walks in they have to prove that they’ve got that desire and determination to be in the team.

“We’ve now got Robert Glatzel and Danny Ward coming back and Joe Ralls is getting fitter, so players will come back into the group and selection is not going to be easy, but I’ll make the tough decisions for the good of the team."
