Ralls post-Millwall | It's a massive win that we take into Wednesday

Interviews
Following Cardiff City's 1-0 home win over Millwall on Saturday afternoon, Joe Ralls spoke to Cardiff City TV.

Coming on as a substitute in the second half with the match goalless, the skipper played a pivotal part in Dimitrios Goutas' 78th minute winner, delivering a perfect corner-kick for the centre-back to head home.

Speaking in the moments following the final whistle, Rallsy reflected on an important result in the Welsh capital.

“It certainly wasn’t one for the purists," Joe began. "But it was in tough conditions today, and it was tough to get going, but we got there in the end and that’s the main thing.

"We knew how important this game was off the back of two defeats. All that mattered today was getting the three points and we got there in the end, so we’re buzzing with that."

Joe continued by praising the loyal home support, with over 19,000 in the stands around CCS to watch the Bluebirds return to ways, and a match against Birmingham City coming up in Leckwith on Wednesday night:

“Of course," said Joe. "The home fans turned up again in their numbers and we didn’t give them a lot to shout about today, but like I said they stuck with us and we got there in the end.

"It was a massive win for us and we take that now into Wednesday, where hopefully we can put in a better performance. All in all, what we care about is winning games, and that’s what we’ve done today, so everyone will be buzzing.

“I think we played into their hands a little bit early on in the game, inviting them onto us a little bit, which got them a little head of steam when we should’ve taken the game to them.

"We’ll look at it in the video room and we’ve got a couple of sessions now before Wednesday, and we’ll be better. It wasn't our best performance by any means, but after two defeats, all that matters was a win, and we got that so we can be happy.”
