Stoke City manager Mark Hughes has admitted that he and his players are "disappointed" not to have won against Cardiff City on Wednesday.
"I thought we did well up to a point - at the top end which is a problem for us," BBC Sport quotes him as saying. "But in terms of controlling the game I thought we did well we were the only team likely to win the game.
"In terms of performance I thought we stuck at it without creating too many clear cut chances. We're disappointed not to win the game, I thought our performance merited that.
"I don't recall too many chances for them but I thought we stuck at it. We have got to keep our home form nice and solid, we have been decent enough but we need to take maximum points."
Cardiff are level on points with Stoke but a place behind due to an inferior goal difference.
