Joe Rothwell scored an important goal for Blackburn in one of the narrow football results of the weekend in the Championship. The match was played behind closed doors due to Covid guidelines set by the Welsh government. Rovers capitalized on Bournemouth dropping points early in the day although Ryan Nyambe was sent off for a second bookable offense in the 76th minute.
Cardiff’s Steve Morison: “We weren’t good enough in the final third. We dominated the game but couldn’t put the ball in the net. It is another game we should have got something out of, but that’s where we are at the minute. We went toe-to-toe with Blackburn, but they had that moment of quality which we didn’t have. We didn’t give up many chances and had triple the amount of shots and final third entries, but I understand that doesn’t mean a lot if we don’t win the game.”
Blackburn’s Tony Mowbray: “The fact the game was very bitty played into their hands and allowed them to get the ball into our box from free kicks, corners, and throw-ins. There was some brilliant resilience from us. I would have preferred us to play as we had done for the first 20 minutes for the rest of the game, but it wasn’t to be and we had to dig in. I don’t get excited because I know how tough this league is. The next game is always there ready to bite you on the backside.”
