Adam Barrett saluted his side’s character as they came from behind twice to earn a point with Cardiff City at The Den.

Tom Bradshaw struck twice after Danny Ward and Junior Hoilett put the visitors ahead in the 12th and 57th minute respectively.

Barrett, in his last game in charge before resuming a coaching role under incoming manager Gary Rowett who was sat in the stands, praised his sides mental strength on the back of a tough defeat at Brentford only fur days ago.

“To come back twice tonight against a strong Cardiff team, I’m delighted with our character,” he said.

“It’s been a topsy-turvy two weeks, four points in three games, I’m delighted.

“With a new manager coming in and I hope he can take us forward.”

Barrett gave special praise to his goal scorer, who has now scored five goals in his previous four games, some return for a player who missed the majority of last season with a serious ankle ligament injury.

“That’s why we signed Tom (Bradshaw).

“We played against him and knew he gets goals.

“Full credit to the lad, he’s worked extremely hard behind the scenes and we’ve started to see the player he is.

“Bart pulled off a couple of great saves, and after the disappointment of Saturday’s defeat, to get a point, I’m just delighted.”

Barrett will take a back seat as Rowett will take charge for the visit of his former club Stoke City on Saturday.
