Defender revels in stopping the League leaders and admits he loved the blustery conditions more than most!

Tommy Smith labelled Town’s point at League leaders Cardiff as a ‘great result’ but felt Blues had chances to nick all three.

The centre-half helped Mick McCarthy’s side record a clean sheet against the Bluebirds- the first team to do so in 26 attempts- and felt the point at a wet and windy Cardiff City Stadium was well deserved.

“It was a bit scrappy at times but taking a point from Cardiff is a great result for us,” Tommy told the Club website.

“The wet conditions made it great for a defender and you could really get stuck in. It made the pitch slick and I think both teams tried to get a passing game going.

“I think it was a fairly even game overall and probably a fair result but we’ve had chances to nick it. Obviously Gi (Guirane N’Daw) has hit the bar and Frank (Nouble) was unlucky not to score right at the end.

“That would have been great if it had gone in but coming to Cardiff and taking a point is a result we have to be pleased with.”
