Jordan Hugill helped Cardiff improve their chances of survival as they produced one of the important football results of the weekend in the Championship. The home side came out of the blocks firing when Hugill opened the scoring in the seventh minute before Isaak Davies doubled their advantage in the 65th minute. Keinan Davies scored a consolation goal deep into stoppage time to prevent Cardiff from securing their first clean sheet in 25 games.
Cardiff’s Steve Morison: “It’s huge. We know we need to win games of football, especially with the teams around us losing over the weekend, and what an excellent job they did. We set them up in a game plan and we brought new players in because the players we already have need help. I thought, to a man, they were outstanding. We have been heavily reliant this year on players from the academy and younger players who have had good moments this year.”
Nottingham Forest’s Steve Cooper: “We have only got ourselves to blame for not winning today. I think the goals were poor ones – we turned it over too easily on both occasions – and, technically, we were not at the level to create and score. For all of the decent areas we got in and for all of the ball that we had, we just didn’t create enough. In the end, if you want to create and score chances, you have to show a bit of quality, particularly in the way I want the team to play.”
