He said “That one was for our fans.

“This was a huge game and I knew how much it meant for the supporters. They generated a phenomenal atmosphere which we don’t see in League games and they created an extra man for us on the pitch.

“Everyone played well for us in what was a magnificent derby match and the players, Welsh, English or Spanish, can be proud of what they achieved.

“Cardiff started better than us, but after the first 20 minutes, when we began to play the game, not the occasion, we were excellent.

“We need derbies like this and atmospheres like this to keep going and I’m delighted we have produced the performance and occasion we did in front of the TV cameras.”
