Cardiff City's woeful form continued into 2011 after Bristol City dished out another thumping to grab all three points and re-iterate our desperate need for defensive reinforcements.
It took just minutes for Bristol City to set the tone for the afternoon, and the Robins reaped their rewards for targetting the hapless Lee Naylor who followed up his dire performance against Watford with another poor display, albeit as part of a terrible defensive unit.
Jon Stead found acres of space on the Cardiff left and crossed for Brett Pitman to fire home. BCFC had a game plan that worked to perfection, and saw them work far harder than the visitors who were simply outfought, outthought and easily overpowered.
Chopra did have a few chances in a brief spell of dominance, he looked to have been brought down by David James, before seeing a shot hit the post, and another blocked by Lee Johnson. Mark Hudson too had a good chance to score, but ballooned his effort well over the bar.
Shortly before the break, Bristol City once again broke at pace, and scored a near carbon copy of the opener as Jon Stead, so often our tormentor, this time found Johnson.
THe rout was completed in the second half as Jemal Campbell-Ryce found space and skipped past Darcy Blake to finish well. In between all this, Cardiff CIty goalkeeper Tom Heaton made a series of very good saves to keep the scoreline from becoming a cricket score.
A devastatingly bad day for Cardiff City, on the back of a dismal 4-1 thrashing last time out. The poor form is far more than a blip by this stage and even Dave Jones can no longer pretend otherwise. Opposition teams can easily negate our play by sitting deep and working hard. They can always be confident of getting chances as the Bluebirds defence continues to look suitable only for League 2 standard.
