FA Cup finalists Cardiff City are now unbeaten in 10 league and cup games but still less than 15,000 turned up to watch the match onSaturday afternoon. Take away the Blackpool fans and the home support was about 14,000 - so where were the other 19,000 from last week ??? 

Play off hopes are still alive and all the team can keep doing is picking up the points. Speaking after the match Cardiff City boss David Jones said 

  • "It was a tough match as Blackpool are a very hard-working team. We took our foot off the gas after the third goal and probably had to work far harder than necessary in the closing minutes. I am asking the lads to keep going and that is very hard as we haven't the numbers in the squad.They are running at full pelt and I have told them that is how they will steer clear of injuries. We haven't given up on the play-offs but it is difficult for us with the FA Cup final coming up, but we will all keep on working hard."

    Subs Not Used: Oakes, Loovens, Scimeca, Blake.
