Carling Cup Cheer For Cardiff City

Carling Cup Cheer For Cardiff City

Cardiff City made their way into the draw for the 2nd round of the Carling Cup after a 3-1 midweek win over Dagenham & Redbridge and were rewarded with a home tie against local rivals Bristol Rovers.

Goals from Gavin Rae, a Bothroyd penalty and a strike from the lively Peter Whittingham were enough to see off a spirited though lacking Daggers outfit who did score a goal to make it interesting in the second half.

Cardiff City will now face Bristol Rovers and come across the man who was manager prior to Dave Jones. Lennie Lawrence was the man who oversaw our promotion to the Championship and is now Director of Football at Bristol Rovers.
