Ex-Swan Jackett Looking For Reaction At Cardiff

Ex-Swan Jackett Looking For Reaction At Cardiff

Cardiff City host fellow high-flyers Millwall on Saturday with both sides looking to put an end to recent disappointing results and return to winning ways. The Bluebirds have suffered back-to-back away defeats, while Millwall were humiliated as Watford put 6 past them before a 2-1 defeat to Ipswich Town in the carling Cup.

Ex-Swansea City manager Kenny Jackett is now in charge at the New Den and is looking for a response from his team. His newly promoted side lack the star quality of the likes of Bellamy, Chopra and co. but form an effective and well drilled outfit capable of causing a stir in the Championship.

Jackett admits his side`s confidence was dented by the 6-1 annihilation, but stressed that his side would bounce back and were looking forward to the challenges ahead.

Jackett told Newsshopper.co.uk:

"It is early in the season and we`ve got to work hard to overcome what has happened. The players from the last couple of games now have to work hard going forward to try and get their confidence back. "

"It is about doing the basics on the football pitch and sticking to the basics which can help you get a foothold in the game."

"We wanted this opportunity to try and prove ourselves and compete at this level. Nobody said it was going to be easy and there are a lot of people working hard now to make that transition and to play in the Championship."



Cardiff City will be glad to get back to the comforts of playing at home, where we remain unbeaten and have not conceded a goal since Ched Evans` strike in the opening fixture of the season. The Bluebirds remain a potent force, but have struggled in the absence of key players like Bellamy, Olofinjana and Drinkwater. Millwall look certain to provide tough and resolute opposition and we will certainly not have it our own way. In some respects, a team high in confidence and looking to play fluidly and openly would suit our game far more, however, City need to pick up points if we are not to lose momentum and the incoming squad players (e.g. McPhail, Koumas, Keogh) have an excellent chance to prove themselves here.
