Goalless Rae Desperate To Hit Net For Cardiff

Goalless Rae Desperate To Hit Net For Cardiff

Cardiff City midfielder Gavin Rae is an important member of our starting XI, playing in a defensive role and breaking up opposition attacks and possession. His partnership with Joe Ledley in midfield has flourished and we look a well-balanced team and more creative of late.


One thing missing from Rae's game however is goals. he is yet to score this season but crashed a fierce drive into the crossbar against Barnsley - the frame was shaking for 30 seconds afterwards. Then against Doncaster he crossed for Chopra's opening goal when half the ground was urging him to shoot. A later shot was saved by Neil Sullivan.


Rae has spoken out of his desire to get on the scoresheet and after seeing Eddie Johnson break his duck - Rae is even more determined. He told the SW Echo:


'I`d love to score one. I`ve never finished a season with less than four. I had a decent chance against Doncaster, but their goalkeeper made a good save.'


'I`m working to get into the right positions to score and I`ll keep doing that. If the chance comes I`ll do everything I can to take it.'




Four goals between now and the end of the season seems a huge ask of Gavin Rae, and one he almost certainly will not make. However his work-rate, determination and overall performances have been very good and he is deserving of a break. Don't be expecting a hat-trick any time soon, but a goal for Gavin Rae would be most welcome for the team, fans and the player himself.
