Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

CARDIFF boss Malky Mackay says his play­ers will be brought back down to earth with a bump in the League Cup against Ac­cring­ton Stan­ley if they are not care­ful.

The Blue­birds beat Manch­ester City on Sun­day, but a mid­week cup de­feat to League Two Stan­ley would quickly burst their bub­ble.

“The be­lief we had, against the best team in the league, is some­thing we can take into next week and the week af­ter,” Mackay said.

“But we should not take Ac­cring­ton lightly. The lads have to keep their feet on the ground.”

Ac­cring­ton boss James Beattie says the game is mas­sive for the club and wants to see a muchim­proved per­for­mance than their re­cent home de­feat to Chel­tenham.

“It’s a huge week for us, and a huge week for the club,” Beattie said.

“I will be look­ing to play­ers to see how they re­act from a dis­ap­point­ing de­feat be­cause we need a re­sponse.”
