Mick McCarthy is relishing the pressure now being on Cardiff City as a sixth win on the trot in a 2-1 victory at Bournemouth saw they leapfrog their rivals into a play-offs spot. Skipper Sean Morrison and Kieffer Moore, with a penalty, gave City a two goal lead at half-time.
Steve Cooper praised Swansea City’s powers of recovery after they muscled their way to a vital win thanks to the broad shoulders of Ben Cabango. The young Wales central defender used his strength, determination and imposing physique to get above Coventry’s defenders to head home and earn a 1-0 win over Coventry City at the Liberty Stadium. It was enough for the Swans to claim a victory that keeps them in fourth place in the Championship, but just a point behind both Brentford and Watford – who also both won – with two games in hand.

Wayne Pivac has been given a New Zealand seal of approval from fellow Kiwi John Mitchell just days before the pair clash in the Six Nations. England defence coach Mitchell has backed the direction in which Pivac is taking his Wales team, who are just one win away from an unexpected Triple Crown. The two countrymen will meet at the Principality Stadium on Saturday with Pivac having received an unsolicited pat on the back from the former All Blacks and USA head coach.
There’s no substitute for experience – that’s Mick McCarthy’s verdict after moving Cardiff City from relegation candidates to within a win of reaching the play-off places. A sixth win in a row at Bournemouth tonight could move them ahead of last season’s Premier League outfit and up into sixth place. Unbeaten in seven games since the 62-year-old McCarthy arrived, the Bluebirds are a team transformed.
