Cardiff City manager Malky Mackay praised the "great character and mentality" of his players for maintaining their long-term position at the top of the Championship.
The Bluebirds beat Blackburn Rovers 3-0 on Easter Monday to go seven points clear at the summit, now very close to securing automatic promotion.
"I'm absolutely delighted with the position we're in and this win gives us that little gap with seven games to go", Mackay said.
"I've a group who have been up there for four months to be analysed, criticised, shot at, ignored and studied, but we have stayed in the top position. We have shown a great character and mentality within our team."
"We are fighting every inch to make sure we give our supporters the dream they want."
"The performance and result was very pleasing. We started really well and we were relentless. We looked like a team that dominated from start to finish. That doesn't happen too many weeks in this division."
