Cardiff City’s 1-0 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday means the Bluebirds’ miserable run continues, with the club now second from bottom in the Premier League table.

The Welsh outfit have not had the response from their players as they would have wished following the arrival of Norwegian manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, with just one win in their last 12 league outings.

In fairness it was a resilient performance against Spurs and only a Roberto Soldado goal was the difference between the two teams at White Hart Lane.

But good displays don’t count for anything when looking at the Premier League come the end of the season and, on current form, it looks like Cardiff will be back playing their football in the Championship next season.

Solskjaer has been determined to remain upbeat but the signs are not looking good for the relatively inexperienced manager who took over from Malky Mackay.

He told Sky Sports: “In the context of the last 10 games now, we’re looking forward to it because that was a team out there that really worked for each other.

“We had a belief in what we did by creating problems for Spurs and could have had something from the game.”

Cardiff’s next game could not be bigger as they prepare to face fellow strugglers Fulham at the Cardiff City Stadium on Saturday.

The Bluebirds are 2.28 to pick up what would be a vital three points, whilst the Cottagers are 3.05 to come back across the Welsh border with the victory.
