Cardiff City boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is hoping that the team can push on in their bid for Premier League survival after claiming a precious win against fellow relegation strugglers Fulham on Saturday.
The Bluebirds earned all three points after a brace from Steven Caulker and a Sascha Riether own goal gave the Welsh side a much needed victory.
The win is only the sixth of the season for Cardiff but it has came just at the right time for them, with the result lifting them up to 18th position in the table on 25 points, with an inferior goal difference the only thing keeping them in the relegation zone.
The Welsh club has struggled with off-field issues all season, with the club’s owner Vincent Tan becoming something of a pantomime villain over the decision to sack Malky Mackay earlier on in the campaign, a choice which was met with wide-spread criticism from the fans.
Despite the precarious situation of their league position, current boss Solskjaer is hoping that the 3-1 win over Fulham can give the team some much needed momentum going into their next game against Everton on March 15, in which they are huge outsiders at 7.64 to make it back-to-back victories.
Solskjaer said: “We can’t relax. We’ve just got to build on this and go to [Everton] next with the belief that we can nick something.”
“It’s so tight in the bottom half of the table. It might not have to be 37 points to stay up but that’s the aim. If we can get that, I think we are safe.”
