Josh Murphy discusses squad atmosphere at Cardiff City



Cardiff attacker Josh Murphy has said that the squad are playing with “confidence”, after the Bluebirds’ 2-2 draw with Wigan Athletic at the weekend.

Neil Harris’s side made it seven points out of nine in their three-game week, and the Bluebirds now occupy 9th place in the Championship table.

The attacker was on the scoresheet once again for Cardiff, finding the net in the 8th minute of the contest – his second goal in as many games.

Speaking to the club’s official website, the 24-year-old reflected on the result, stating that the team “dug deep” to earn a valuable point.

“Being back at home, we dug in deep and got a result in the end. Seven points out of nine isn’t too bad and if that was said at the start of the week, everyone would want it because the Championship is a difficult league. It can be relentless,” Murphy said.

“The match was scrappy and if we’d had it our own way, we’d have played a bit more football, but Wigan came in with a game plan and made it difficult for us which was frustrating.”

The result stretched Cardiff’s unbeaten league run to seven games, and Murphy is glad the side are hitting form at the right time after an inconsistent December.

“Everyone’s playing with confidence at the moment and we’re on a bit of a roll so we just need to keep that going. We’re moving on with our campaign with another big game against Stoke City on Saturday,” he added.

Murphy also commented on his own recent form for the club, which has seen a resurgence in the past couple of weeks.

“I’m enjoying my football at the moment,” he said.

“I think everyone can see that and long may it can continue.”

The Verdict

After an underwhelming season so far for Cardiff, Murphy has stepped up his game in the last two months, regularly contributing with goals.

Since January 15th, the 24-year-old has found the the net five times in all competitions, and was awarded Man of the Match for his performance against Huddersfield.

Neil Harris will be hoping that Murphy’s form continues, as when he is at the top of his game, the whole team usually benefits.
