SPIR­ITED CARDIFF SHOW CAN DRAW CVs

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

THOUGH a point does lit­tle to im­prove Cardiff’s league po­si­tion, their bat­tling per­for­mance was a great ad­vert to prospec­tive man­agers.

Whether or not the fight­ing spirit – and no lit­tle qual­ity – shown by the play­ers will be enough to per­suade those with good CVs to risk the in­ter­fer­ence and wrath of chair­man Vincent Tan, how­ever, re­mains to be seen.

Per­haps Tan picked the team for this game? If so, the man him­self might be in the frame to takeover! Rule noth­ing out in this soap opera.

In all se­ri­ous­ness, who- ever they ap­point, Steve McClaren ex­pects Cardiff to ri­val them for pro­mo­tion.

They are, after all, only six points out­side the top six and – at the time of writ­ing – Ley­ton Ori­ent boss Rus­sell Slade is favourite to suc­ceed Ole Gun­nar Sol­sk­jaer. For Derby, four points dropped from their last two home out­ings has put a dent in their pro­mo­tion am­bi­tions. How­ever, McClaren is right to re­main con­fi­dent in his team’s cre­den­tials.
