RUSSELL | WE TOOK THE GAME TO BURNLEY
Club News6th April
Russell Slade spoke to the Press and Media following the Bluebirds’ battling draw away to Sky Bet Championship leaders, Burnley.
The Clarets came into the game on a sixteen-match unbeaten streak, but City’s manager was pleased that his men took the game to the opposition, and were perhaps unfortunate not to take all three points.
“During the international break, you’d have probably taken four points from the next two games against Derby and Burnley,” began Russell. “But we’ve not come here just to take a point.
“You’ve seen that tonight, and the travelling fans, who were magnificent behind that goal, have come here and seen Cardiff City take the game to Burnley tonight. We came with a game plan and I thought we nullified their strengths and took good control of the game, creating some very good opportunities against a very good side.
“We caused them problems in their own box, and I would have been delighted if we’d taken the opportunity to wrap it up at the end. We got down the sides of them and caused them problems in the box but it just didn’t quite drop right.
“We’ve got real momentum at the minute and we’ve got to take as many points as we possibly can. With six matches left and eighteen points to play for, all we can control now is our next game. We’ll do our very best.”
