Manager Kenny Jackett praised the way his side played in the second half of their 3-3 draw with promotion-chasing Cardiff. All the goals came in the second half, Liam Trotter with a penalty, Kevin Lisbie and Steve Morison netting for the Lions, Burke scoring twice and Peter Whittingham once for City. "I thought it was a cracking game, great entertainment and we contributed to a great spectacle," the Lions boss said. "We didn't play as much as I would have liked in the first half but we changed that around after the break. We really went for it at times and I was very proud of the players at the end of the game. "We are six points off the play-offs and I think we are in a very good position to really make a challenge for them. "It is a good point against one of the best teams in this league and we showed we can compete. The first half was a bit quiet but in the second half we knew the crowd would get behind us and we really lifted our performance, as did Cardiff."
