Cardiff City crashed to a woeful defeat at the hands on Norwich City - the Canaries out-performing the Bluebirds almost from start to finish. The home side looked the more confident, belying their lowly position with a fast tempo and series of clever touches and flicks. By contrast, Cardiff City were sluggish, under-pressure and tried to rely on pumping high balls to Eddie Johnson. Gow in particular was on form for Norwich and went close with two drives.
Cardiff City`s play was disrupted by an injury to Darcy Blake, meaning a left footed winger (Paul Parry) was deployed as an emergency right-back - let`s hope that is not needed again. The period leading up to half-time saw the Bluebirds improve and show their quality - you wondered if Norwich had blown their chance as we grew in confidence and forced Norwich into their own box for almost 5 minutes.
However, any hopes of a turn-around were dashed just moments into the second half when Hoolaham nissed a golden headed opportunity when un-marked. City Just a few minutes later, it was 1-0 to Norwich after a terrbible goal arising from a hopeful punt forward. Capaldi missed it and Dimi dallied allowing Mooney to steal in and score. Dimi stayed down to minutes afterwards, but the only injury was to his pride after another horrendous mistake.
Eddie Johnson was denied a headed goal by a good save jut a few moments later but Cardiff never really threatened the Norwich goal and conceded a late second as Cody McDonald beat the offside trap to slot home in injury time. We then had our best chance deep in injury time but Roger Johnson was denied by an excellent save.
Make no mistake, this was a poor showing. We were simply outclassed and had no ideas. That`s two defeats to lowly teams in two weeks, we had no answer to their determination, grit and desire. Thoroughly disappointing evening for Bluebirds, and the supporters.
