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.

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.

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.
