Vital Report: Cardiff 1 Fulham 0
Cardiff City Stadium
Unsurprisingly the confirmation that Cardiff would be returning blue coincided with the second highest attendance at the Cardiff City Stadium, which also resulted in us beating Fulham 1-0 on Saturday too.
The decision that Vincent Tan made to return to blue, which I again credit him for doing so, could prove a defining moment for us going forward and could be the moment when our season turns around too, this wins a good starting point!
It didn't take long for the Bluebird to take the lead.
A long throw in routine is something we've used to success several times this season and it worked again with Aron Gunnarsson's throw finding Morrison who saw his header have enough on it to cross the line even though goalkeeper Marcus Bettinelli got a hand to it.
This almost worked again a few minutes later but Kostas Stafylidis blocked an effort off the line.
Ryan Tunnicliffe forced stand in goalkeeper Simon Moore, in for David Marshall once again as he was in the FA Cup (Marshall was said to be injured) into a good save from distance.
Craig Noone was causing problems and he almost did enough to create an opening, which would have left Kenwyne Jones with an easy finish but Stafylidis was again the man between us and second goal before the break.
A second half debut came for Alex Revell, fellow signing Scott Malone also made his debut, when he came of for Jones at half time, who had taken a first half knock and the arrival from Rotherham soon had an impact but a John Brayford layoff saw him shoot wide.
Former Bluebird Ross McCormack hasn't enjoyed the best of times since signing for Fulham, he tried his luck against us when he took a freekick for a foul on him by former teammate Peter Whittingham, but this didn't trouble Moore.
The better of the chances came for us as we sought a second goal, Adeyemi headed over and Revell also had another chance but volleyed over as we saw out a win, which I'm again hoping can get our season going.
