Stoke City 2 Cardiff 0 RECAP! Post-match verdict from Michael O’Neill after Joe Allen seals vital win

Still a precarious position?

MON: It’s a big win but we’ve been in a precarious position since I came in. We’ve not had a game when we’ve gone in looking forward to it and we could relax.

We are coming from being bottom of the league and a big distance down from some of the teams.

We hope we can come to a position where we can look forward to a Saturday afternoon and enjoy the game in some aspect! We’re not in that position at this minute in time.

What we have been, in the time I’ve been in, is that we win and we lose. We’ve not had many draws – two I think.

Ultimately we’re in a much better position than when we took over but we’re not going to get out of this situation. We didn’t expect to be five or six points ahead of where we are now, that would have taken an amazing run of form.

Equally, from a cosmetic point of view the league table looks better but we’re well aware of the fact that we’re only three points above Wigan, who are on a great run of form themselves.

And we’re dragging more and more teams into it all the time, which is good.
