Paul Robinson was happy to put another date in the fixture diary after the FA Cup stalemate at Ninian Park.Cardiff will travel down the Lane next week as the teams go again for a place in the fourth round with the draw being made this afternoon. While it was a fairly frenetic encounter on a cold and wet late afternoon, Robbo was not called into action on many occasions during a game when a replay did appear the most likely outcome.
"It was a typical old fashioned 3rd round cup tie with terrible weather conditions and I think, overall, we are pleased to get out with a result," suggested Robbo in the tunnel after the game.
"The goal wasn't threatened that much, they played reasonably well without creating too many problems - as we did. We didn't play particularly badly, but we didn't create much and I can't imagine that it was the best game to watch for the supporters.
"At the end of it all we got a result and we fancy our chances against anybody at the Lane. I think the longer the game went on they accepted a replay and we weren't committing too many forward because we were happy with it as well.
"The wind and rain were terrible, it was very difficult to see with the rain swirling in the wind. The first half was particularly difficult because we were up the hill against the wind so when we got to half-time at 0-0 we knew we would have a better chance in the second half. We played better and had more of the game then."
There is now another midweek game added to the schedule, but Robbo is far from complaining.
"Another game! We like that though and we'll fill White Hart Lane and make the atmosphere better than it was here - and get a result."
