Kim Bags Impressive First Goal For Cardiff City

Kim Bags Impressive First Goal For Cardiff City

Cardiff City's South Korean star Kim Bo Kyung scored his first goal for the Bluebirds after wrapping up an excellent 4-1 win over Blackburn Rovers on Friday night. It was Kim's main contribution after being dropped to allow the return of Craig Noone from suspension but he reacted in the best possible way and is already pushing for a recall.

It was Kim, and not Craig Conway who made way for Noone. the Scotsman is disillusioned with his lack of playing time and saw a transfer request rejected before starring in the 1-0 home win over Sheffield Wednesday. Kim was relegatd to the bench, but came on after 70 minutes with City 2-1 up. Joe Mason made the game safe before Kim put a polish on a resounding win.

Replacing Noone, Kim is a different type of player entirely. More technically sound, but lacking the explosive pace and skills of Noone. However, the goal he scored was a tiemly reminder of his all round contribution as his impressive work-rate saw his close f=down the Rovers defender, force the mistake and break clear. Kimbo fed Helguson and found the space to clip the retun pass across Robinson and inside the far post. Not a powerful finish, but expertly place and well deserved.

Kim took a while to win a place in the CCFC side, with Mackay keen to give him time to adapt. He has now made 13 appearances, with just over half coming from the bench. Recently, he has been starting but while he has looked tidy and skillful, his exact role was unclear and on occasions he seemed somewhat of a luxury.

One weakness to Kimbo's game had been his finishing with numerous chances going begging during games against Barnsley and Sheff Wed. We won both, but Kim missed chances and looked short of confidence in front of goal. His striker against Rovers however was beautifully taken and hopefully he can take confidence and bag a few more in the forthcoming games. Last season we were short of options out wide but in Noone, Kim, Conway and Tommy Smith to return - we are very strong on the flanks and will cause problems for any team. Well done Kimbo!
