Bluebirds Bounce Back With Wednesday Win
Caretaker managers Danny Gabbidon and Scott Young were over the moon with this result, as it was their first win in charge.
With prospective new manager Russell Slade watching from the stands, it was important for Cardiff to show what they can do.
The game kicked off and Fabio had to do some quick defending in the first few minutes after saving the shot from Sheffield Wednesday's Stevie May.
After 30 minutes or so both teams were having fairly equal possession, playing well and taking shots, yet it was Cardiff that scored the first goal of the game. Sean Morrison headed the ball from the centre of the box into the middle of the goal; Peter Whittingham got the assist after he whipped in a free kick following Joe Mattock's yellow card for handball.
Only five minutes into the second half, Cardiff City's Morrison scored again, however, in an attempt to stop a cross from Sheffield Wednesday, he scored an own goal making the score 1-1.
This was followed by many corners and shots, some on target and some off.
Finally, Anthony Pilkington saved the day for Cardiff City and took a right-footed shot from the centre of the box into the bottom left-hand corner of the goal, which was assisted by Kenwyne Jones with a headed pass.
With Fabio being substituted off due to injury, Cardiff went into a tense five minutes of added time; Cardiff fans were on the edges of their seats in the hope that we wouldn't throw away the win, as they have previously done.
As the full time whistle blew, Cardiff fans jumped up and applauded the boys. It was important for them to show the fans that they have fight in them and won't continue conceding games, as it was very clear how annoyed Cardiff fans were after the last three games.
With a bit of luck, before the next game against Brighton tomorrow night (Tuesday 30th September 2014), Russell Slade will step up to manage our team and hopefully manage us back up to the Premier League.
