The manager of Cardiff City, Malky Mackay, has admitted that his team played poor football in the match against Brighton & Hove Albion, but, he has assured the fans that the team will bounce back in the next match against the Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Cardiff City was defeated by Brighton & Hove Albion by 2-0 on Tuesday. This was only the seventh defeat for Cardiff City in the ongoing Championship. However, despite this defeat, Cardiff City maintained its top position in the points table.
This was Cardiff City’s first defeat in the last 10 matches.

Talking to the reporters in the post match press conference, Mackay said, “We have played amazingly well in this season, but, in today’s match, our performance was poor. But, this happens once in a while. You can’t put up top performances every day.”

“Today, we let our fans down, but, I want to assure them that the team will bounce back against the Wolves.”
“We shouldn’t asses this defeat in a different manner. It was just one of those days when a lot of things went wrong for us. It’s not going to happen every day.”

When asked if there was a sign of complacency in team’s performance today, Mackay said, “No, not at all. It’s not that the boys didn’t try today. They tried hard, but, it was not their day.”

“We haven’t got complacent at all. The players are working hard during the training sessions and they are giving their 100% on the field. But, as I said, things do go wrong occasionally and that’s what happened today.”

Cardiff City has played 32 matches in the ongoing Championship so far out of which they have won 21, lost 7 and in the remaining 4 matches, they have shared points.
