Port Vale 2-3 Cardiff City

Scorers : Macheda (2) and Ralls.

It was only Port Vale but I am delighted with that win tonight.

A cup run is something we as fans love but in this season and with new signings and changes to our style of play I think it is great for Ole to utilise players who are not first team regulars just yet.

The size of the squad and options we have we need these games to provide the squad with meaningful games, especially when we have strikers like Macheda and Guerra.

Macheda getting two on his competitive debut is a positive from tonight and hopefully he will take his chances when he gets his league debut too.

Stand out performances from Macheda, Guerra, John and Ralls at least gives Ole more to think about for the league matches.

Ole’s biggest disappointment will be that he won’t be playing Man Utd in the next round.
