Mackay said: "This was a really big win for us after losing to Peterborough and it was smashing the way we bounced back from that. I'm delighted.

"We knew we were coming to play a very good team and that it was going to be tough.

"But I think this was a great advert for the Championship - and I'm not saying that just because we won. It was two teams playing attractive football and at a hell of a tempo.

"The goal was a great strike from (Craig) Bellamy and it showed the quality we have.

"But it was just as impressive to see the way he was closing players down in the last five minutes of the game. It shows what a team player he is.

"He is beginning to get match-fit, because he has been unfortunate with injuries.

"In this game he never gave the defenders a minute's peace. He is comfortable being with this group of players and enjoying his football.

"But it was also a good defensive performance all round, and I think David Marshall is the best goalkeeper in the division."

reat games with free flowing atracttive football featuring 4 top teams, showing it is possible to win in the right way entertaining fans at the same time. All the mourinho apologists if you only care about the result why watch the game at all or any game for that matter. It made me laugh how they all turned up on twitter to criticise pep when mourinho couldn't even get this far.
