'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Manager Says-Cardiff 2-1 Burnley

'In the end it was too little, too late, said Steve Cotterill after losing away to Cardiff yesterday by 2 goals to one

'We bombarded them in the second half and we haven't done that in three years of coming down here.

'We just couldn't unlock the door at the end for an equaliser, so I'm disappointed.

'When Ade scored (the equaliser) I thought there was only one team going to win it.

'I thought we were coming on very strong, but we talked about letting Parry in from the right onto his left foot. It's easy me talking about it though and it's harder for the players to execute.

The Clarets unusually made a triple substitution at half time whilst changing formation from 4-1-4-1 to 4-4-2. The gaffer explained these tactics as follows:

'We knew it was going to be tough coming here and we changed our shape a little bit, knowing full well what we could do later in the game, probably from the 60th minute when we wanted to make our substitutions.

'In the end, we made the substitutions at half time because from the start of the game we looked fatigued in certain areas.

'I thought John Spicer was our best player by a mile in the first half and we needed to get others to join in with him.

'In the second half we did that and the bonus of getting Chris McCann through is a real bonus because he is a very good player.

There are not too many bonuses to come out of the game, but Chris up and running is good news for us.'

The gaffer had futher things to say about our sudden leakiness and inability to keep clean sheets

'Conceding goals is something we don't enjoy.

'Everyone knows how I am about clean sheets and the lads are the ones who have to get a little bit more angry to make sure we don't concede.

'Otherwise, it's always an uphill task for the strikers to unlock doors.

'We have to make sure we tighten things up because wherever we go at the moment we are good entertainment value because there is always goals.'
