Two Play Of Spots Left.

Two Play Of Spots Left.


Cardiff boss Dave Jones watched his side go down 2-1 at Vicarage Road yesterday thanks to a late Marlon King goal and admitted there were only two play off places left to play for now.

It was always going to be a difficult job getting anything from Watford as they try to cut the points between themselves and Sheffield United, but the Bluebirds almost got a draw.

Watford dominated for long periods but it took them until the 69th minute to open the scoring when ball fell to Bouazza, who chipped the ball to the far post and Mackay nodded it home.

But the visitors came back eight minutes later when Whitley latched onto Koumas' long ball and kept his cool to fire past the keeper for 1-1.

But just as it looked like Cardiff were in for an unlikely point, Scimeca made a mess off a backpass and King stepped in to round the keeper and put the ball into an empty net.

You can see where Jones' logic comes from, Cardiff are now in seventh place, three points behind Preston who occupy the last play off pace, eight points behind Palace who are in fifth place, but a massive 24 and 15 points behind Leeds and Watford.

“Leeds and Watford are there,” said Jones.

“But there's a lot of football to be played and a lot of twists and turns and while there are still points on the board we'll keep going.

“We fought hard to stay in the game, and then we fought hard to get back into the game, and then it comes down to one mistake.

“When we got the equaliser we could put our foot on the ball, but he didn't put enough weight on a backpass.

“He's frustrated but no-one will blame him. It happens.”
