Cardiff put on a superb performance in a relegation six-pointer as they produced one of the comfortable football results of the midweek action in the Championship. Joe Ralls put them in front in the fourth minute before Aden Flint doubled their advantage in the 38th minute. Jordan Hugill scored their third in the 57th minute before Uche Ikpeazu rounded off the scoring in the 85th minute.
Cardiff’s Steve Morison: “That was the most complete performance since I took over. We controlled the game without the ball really well and when we had our moments we were spot on. To a man, we were top drawer and it was a good night. This game was always going to be much bigger than the FA Cup tie in Liverpool on Sunday. If I had been sat here having beaten Liverpool and lost to Peterborough we would have been dragged back to within six points of relegation.”
Peterborough’s Darren Ferguson: “I’m devastated. It was a humiliation and a complete embarrassment to the club. A performance of that level in a game of this magnitude will never, ever be acceptable. When you come into a game knowing Cardiff has lost nine games at home, and on the back of a performance last weekend that everyone agreed was a positive one, I cannot take one positive out of that performance, not one. I could have made about two subs after 20-25 minutes. It’s not going to make much difference”
