The Cardiff city manager Malky Mackay has said that he is expecting even more good things from the team in the forthcoming matches. Mackay has said that he can see that the team is on the brink of going on an extremely good run of form because they are playing with a lot of confidence. The team has just managed to win nine home matches on the bounce, which has helped them to take on Crystal Palace in the table. This incredible achievement came after the 1-0 win over Middlesbrough during the weekend. Following this match, they will be facing Barnsley and Derby before welcoming the former manager Dave Jones and his Sheffield Wednesday team.
Even though the home form has been excellent for Mackay and his men, the away form has not been so good as they have suffered three consecutive defeats against Nottingham Forest, Bolton, and Charlton. Mackay is hoping that this slide will be arrested starting with the match against Barnsley after which they will face yet another away match against Derby. Away from has been a major letdown for Cardiff this season, as they have conceded a lot of goals. Mackay has identified this area as one to improve if they are to win promotion automatically this season.
“We look at that run at the end of last season and that is something we know we are capable of. The results away have not been what we might have wanted, but I don’t think there’s been a time when we have been totally out of a game or well beaten. We have always been in there. The key is for us to cut out errors and to improve, most importantly, out final decision making,” said Mackay. Cardiff will be looking to open an advantage over the likes of Leicester and Middlesbrough.
