Morrison: Bluebirds fans are incredible
Two-goal hero, Sean Morrison, praised the “incredible” travelling Bluebirds contingent following Saturday’s huge victory over Hull City.
Plaudits have quite rightly been poured the Skipper’s way following his performance at the KCOM Stadium, but Sean was adamant that credit also went the way of the 2,369 City fans that made the arduous journey north to support the team.
“I need to talk about the support we had today: it was just incredible,” Sean told cardiffcityfc.co.uk.
“To bring that many fans to Hull is superb and we want to say a massive thank you to them. We couldn’t do it without them.
“Next weekend will be huge, and we need as many Cardiff City fans at the Stadium supporting us and making some noise.”
Saturday’s victory moved the Bluebirds on to the 89 point mark – two better than the tally that saw them promoted to the Premier League as Champions back in 2013.
City now know that victory over Reading in a week’s time will be enough to return to the top-flight, irrespective of results elsewhere.
And whilst attentions will very quickly turn to the match at Cardiff City Stadium on May 6th, Morrison reflected on a tough shift in Yorkshire that brought forth three crucial points.
“This was the biggest game of the season,” Sean stated. “We spoke about ten or eleven games ago about every game being a Cup Final and this was another one of those.
“We always seem to bounce back. Today was massive and we put things right after Tuesday.
“The pressure was back on us after Fulham’s result last night. It was up to us today and I thought we defended well: our shape was brilliant. We’ve come to Hull and kept a clean sheet. We’re delighted.
“Now we have to rest up, then focus on next week and go again. We’ve got a week to prepare for the biggest game of our careers.”
And, as for his goals – particularly his second – Sean quipped: “I’ve done it in training a few times, but I think I blacked out really having been that high up the field. Ninety-nine-per-cent of the goals I’ve scored in my career have been headers!
"I thought there was a bit of space up thereafter a corner, so I thought I’d get down there to see what happened. [Nathaniel] Mendez [-Laing] picked me out and then I chopped in side and curled it past the ‘keeper.
“It was nice to score, but if I hadn’t scored and we’d won then I wouldn’t have minded one bit.”
