Malky MacKay delighted with last-gasp win

Watford manager Malky MacKay is delighted with his sides performance in their 3-2 win over Portsmouth.

Cardiff City manager Malky MacKay has declared himself delighted at his side's performance in their 3-2 victory over Portsmouth.

The Bluebirds had to come from behind to get the three points, securing them in the 92nd minute through a Craig Conway winner.

The result moves Cardiff closer to second-place Southampton in the Championship table, and MacKay believes it is nothing more than his side deserved.

"It was a well-deserved victory. The first 35 minutes was some of the best stuff we've played for a while. We created chances, had three one-on-ones, scored a fantastic goal and, although Marshy made the error, there was a calmness going into the second half," said the former Watford boss.

"We showed great mental toughness and character. We played well and I felt the goals would come.

"We were bright and alive. Craig set up one and scored another but both came from set-pieces which we took quickly. We worked hard for things today."

Cardiff's next test comes on Tuesday as they host Crystal Palace in the Carling Cup semi-final second leg.
