"To get a goal is relief when you are a goal down with a few minutes to go. But it was just reward for the way the team kept fighting to the end. We had a never-say-die attitude to knocking on the door.
"There are no givens in this division and I don't expect any between now and the end of the season. You only need to look at the results in other areas to see that everyone is cutting each others' throats. It's a dangerous division.
"But what pleases me about my team is they fight to the very end no matter what. We're still picking up points. You've got to work for every point and we've added another towards our total with one game less."
Gestede's goal left Leicester boss Nigel Pearson a frustrated figure.
Pearson said: "We deserved to win the game as we were much the better side.
"It was a bit cruel on the players bearing in mind how late it was. This is never an easy place to come to and a bit of confidence has been lacking. But I thought we played very well.
"We know that our points tally of late has not been good enough and we've fallen off the pace. I just feel for the players.
"I can't remember Cardiff really creating a chance until the goal. It was fatigue, but that happens. I'm not going to get too downbeat about it. You've got to work your way and show courage through difficult periods. The players did that."
