"The first half, they had the momentum," said Flitcroft.
"We set out to be resilient and show resolve. We got the job done at half time but it was uncomfortable.
"This team (Cardiff) start quick and come at you. We didn't want to be expansive, we tried to be solid.
"This team don't know when to give in. They give us everything every day, they give us the full lot and they gave us that tonight."
Stephen Foster's last-minute effort rescued a point for the Reds, Flitcroft continued, "It took too long to go in (the goal), I thought it would never drop in. I'm absolutely over the moon."
