While Roberto got the goal that ultimately decided the game, club captain Daws was the personification of an air traffic control tower at the other end – taking charge of every inbound aerial ball and winning header after header to keep the Bluebirds at bay.
And the heroics of our long-serving defender were not lost on Roberto after the game.
“Daws was fundamental in the back four,” he said.
“We defended as a team magnificently and everything they threw at us we managed to bat off.
“The team played very, very well against a hard side.”
