Cardiff City Down Eagles - CCFC 2-1 CPFC

Cardiff City Down Eagles - CCFC 2-1 CPFC

Cardiff City deserved to win but made life difficult for themselves as they overcame Cryystal Palace in a 2-1 victory.


Michael Chopra won and converted a penalty on the half hour but just minutes later scores were level following a Bluebirds corner. Palace keeper Flahavan collected and launched a long ball counter - Heaton dallied before colliding with McNaughton, the ball falling nicely for Scannell to hit home.


Despite their dominance, Cardiff were below par but regained the lead 8 minutes into the second half. Eddie Johnson won his header (as he did all afternoon) and Joe Ledley was on hand to fire home to his delight. Ledley had just returned to the field after the physio managed to un-dislocate his elbow.


Palace bossed midfield but offered next to no attacking threat - in truth they didnt deserve or look like equalising. Eddie Johnson was felled in the area for an injury time penalty but Chopra's effort was saved. Lawrence red carded for the last man challenge.


Back to winning ways for City, and true to form - it wasnt particularly pretty but it was three points.

proud to say think we played very good today, nice to get a run out aswell, and as usual our 4-4-2 worked and we got 3 points

didnt notice the unusual change then b04? when we switched to a 4-1-4-1.......? Employing Parry and Chopra in wide attacking positions?

and that also means bluebird04 is darcy blake! and i beleive bluebirdshroom is correct as me and my m8s wondered why the switch when as u say the 4 4 2 was workin. no need to drop chopra wide right and parry left leavin johnson workin too hard upfront! so i do think we should have stayed with 4 4 2

also correct the eddie is a gr8 target man upfront and him and chopra should start linkin better as the flick ons from head should suite chops's style of play. Think eddie deserved to take penalty and who knows if he'd scored what it would do 4 his confidence.
