Carl Curtis : The good and the bad was still pleasing

Today was the best Cardiff City performance of the season in my opinion.

Attacking wise, we got forward and created plenty of chances.

Morrison could have had a hat trick on another day, at set pieces he was having a field day in the Charlton penalty box.

Fabio and Malone were playing as wing backs in the 4-4-2 and that helped us push the whole team forward and kept us on the front foot and dominated large periods of the game.

I thought both penalty shouts were both wrong decisions by the ref, Mason had pushed the ball past the Charlton Keeper and was going around him when the keeper put his body across Masons legs, the second appeal for the handball was so blatant I cannot believe the ref or the linesman didn’t see it.

An area for concern and something that needs tweaking and working on is our defensive play, up until the Hull game we looked solid at the back and difficult to break down but since that game we have become a little too open and mistakes are creeping into our game which have been punished in the last three matches.

With the full backs bombing on, we are leaving ourselves susceptible to counter attacks and a better side may have taken advantage of that today.

But the fact is we won the game today, thoroughly deserved our victory and ended a blip of results that Russell Slade needed to end this afternoon, thankfully we got the win but to do it in such a positive fashion was pleasing indeed.
