Pack | We’re staying in touching distance

Marlon Pack addressed the press at Cardiff City Stadium following the Bluebirds’ 2-2 draw with Wigan Athletic. 

While frustrated to be held to a draw by the Latics, the midfielder looked to the positives after a week in which City took seven points from nine. 

“There was good character shown again from the lads,” began Marlon following the final whistle. “Predominantly in the second half this season, we find a way to get going and we’ve got to try to really do that in the first half.

“We’ve shown character and can come back into games. I don’t think we were at our best, but we created chances.

“It was tough for Will [Vaulks] and I to get on the ball, it was more of a second ball game, trying to get the distances right to support Tommo [Lee Tomlin] and Pato [Callum Paterson] and conditions didn’t help.”

The Bluebirds’ second equaliser has initially gone down as an own goal, but Marlon was keen to claim the strike, as he went on to explain.

“I’m more devastated because I celebrated like I did for my son,” he said. “Then they’ve come back and given it as an own goal – it was going in!

“This league is relentless, it’s a tough division and we’re staying in touching distance, going about our business quietly and hopefully we’ll keep gathering momentum towards the end of the season.”
