Bluebirds manager Steve Morison has branded himself a genius for his tactical decisions during City’s impressive 2-1 victory at playoff hopefuls QPR in London on Saturday and has promised Cardiff fans that there is more to come from his team.
Cardiff came away with three points despite falling behind to a crisp Andre Gray strike late in the first half in front of over 1,400 loyal travelling supporters who had made the trip to the capital along the M4.
A great individual goal from substitute Isaak Davies against former City favourite keeper David Marshall set up the platform for the superb victory after an inspired Morison sacrificed Will Vaulks in favour of a more attacking approach.
Homegrown youngster Rubin Colwill scored an absolute pearler of a free-kick after 74 minutes to seal another impressive victory for The Bluebirds.
So right now I’m a genius you know what I mean?Steve Morison
Speaking after the game, a delighted Morison said that despite being one-nil down that he believed “we can win this game. Let’s just try and win.”
Morison added: “We split Isaac and Jordan either side to stop their outside centre-halves having the ball and got Ruben to push through off the back of their deep player to go and put pressure on them because we knew they had no threat going long and it worked.
“So right now I’m a genius you know what I mean? That was the plan and it worked.
“Now we’re all starting to find our feet and obviously today’s tops are all off really I think there’s only more to come from us and hopefully this will be a regular occasion to academy boys scoring goals winning games.”Colwill wins it for City with an absolute screamer of a free kick.
Love him or loathe him, Morison is making progress at Cardiff City and he is certainly impressing me who, like many others, was somewhat underwhelmed by his appointment following the necessary sacking of Mick McCarthy.
So, a great result and some encouraging signs from a Cardiff City team that now look almost certain to survive the relegation battle that was looking considerably harder just a few games ago. Well done Cardiff City players, management and fans.
