Cardiff manager Neil Warnock: “I thought we deserved it overall. We limited them. If we’d have been precise in the final third we could have scored three or four.

“We had a very good plan and looked to break when we could. Our goalkeeper didn’t have many saves, apart from the penalty and [the decision] was very iffy. Some give it, some don’t.

“We showed a lot of character. In the last couple of games, we’ve really had to dig deep. We’ve done well against two really good sides…

“[Camarasa] is quite capable of doing that every week. He deserves it – he’s a super lad. Best day since we’ve been back in the Premier League. We’ve busted a few coupons, haven’t we? The way Leicester have been playing.”

“It was a great save from the penalty to help the team, but the main thing for us is the great win – our first away from home,” the shot-stopper said.

Leicester boss Claude Puel:

“At the end, it was a big disappointment,” Puel told reporters. “It was not a fair result, we were unlucky. It’s a shame but I enjoyed our desire.

“We’ve had a lot of chances without finding the clinical edge. It was frustrating about the result, we knew before the game it would be a tough game with tiredness in this busy period.

“We played a team with another style of play after Chelsea and Man City, a team playing deep with a strong defensive unit, counter-attack, a deep block.

“We started with the right mentality, to play forward, with good chances in the first half, the second half also. We conceded this goal in the last minute. It’s very harsh because I think we deserve another result.

“There’s a lot of disappointment because we tried, but I think a lot of players were tired. I think that’s normal.”
