Scot pleased to be part of a growing City spirit

Cardiff City winger Matty Kennedy reflected on another bright personal performance after the Bluebirds had fought for a draw with high-flying AFC Bournemouth at Cardiff City Stadium on Tuesday evening.

“They were top of the league so it was always going to be a big ask to go out and beat them, but I thought we did well.


“Before the game we’d probably have taken a point, because Bournemouth were on form and have been putting four or five goals past teams regularly.

"As the game went on we could have got frustrated, because the ball just didn’t seem to be going into the back of the net for the second goal that I thought we deserved. We were definitely worthy of the three points.”


Matty has had a fantastic start to his Cardiff City career since his January switch from Everton, and the pacey wide man confirmed that he was pleased with the way things have gone so far.


“I’m happy with the way I’m playing,” he continued. “I’ve only just turned 20, so I was the youngest out there for both of the teams tonight. I just want to do my best, focusing on the good performances rather than the bad ones, and hopefully that’ll help me to get more consistency in my game.


“We've taken confidence from getting points against two very good teams in the last couple of games. Now it’s a case of building on that, and that starts with getting three points against Birmingham City at Cardiff City Stadium on Saturday.”
