Ned Thomas : Very unlucky but

MK Dons 2-1 Cardiff City (AFTER EXTRA TIME)

Attendance 5,617

Cardiff City played a strong team for this Capital One Cup 2nd round match. Connolly, Morrison and Fabio kept their places. Manga, Ameobi and Noone among those to come in.

City started the match well, and came close to scoring a couple of times in the first few minutes. After that MK Dons woke up but there were few chances for the rest of the half.

Second half City started well again and got a deserved goal from Revell.

After that the onslaught started from the home side as they made a triple substitution. They eventually got the equaliser, Moore should have done better, and nearly won in normal time but Macheda cleared off the line. Cardiff only just survived until extra time.

City dominated the first period of extra time but couldn’t get the goal. In the end it was MK Dons who got a winner after a follow up from a good save by Moore.

Connolly and Simon Moore nearly scored at the end but Cardiff City are out of the League Cup.

BUT I could not understand Slade’s substitution of playing Lee Peltier in centre midfield. It was very strange, when he had Kennedy on the bench who he signed?

My man of the match Craig Noone.
