Neil Harris makes strong claim after latest Cardiff City setback



Cardiff City boss Neil Harris admitted he felt ‘robbed’ after his team were beaten by Bristol City last night.

An early Chris Martin effort gave the Robins the lead and whilst the Bluebirds dominated for much of the game after that, they just couldn’t find an equaliser.

That makes it one win in six for the Welsh side, leaving them in the bottom half of the table – and they will drop further down the league after today’s game.

And, reflecting on the loss, Harris explained to the official site how he couldn’t believe his team didn’t win.

I’m absolutely gutted. I feel robbed. We were by far the better team, and created chance after chance. We dominated the ball, dominated at set plays, and dominated every duel on the pitch. But we haven’t scored. It’s a game we deserved to win, and should have done.

I’m not going to bemoan my team for giving the ball away – the amount of chances we created was enough to win two or three games.”

Cardiff have to wait two weeks now until their next fixture, which is away to Harris old club, Millwall.

The verdict

You have to have some sympathy for the Cardiff boss here as they were very good at times against Bristol City but they just lacked that composure in front of goal.

Given the talent they have on the pitch though, the fans are right to be unhappy. Harris is working with an excellent squad for Championship level and the early season form isn’t good enough.

It will be tough looking back to that result over the next two weeks and Cardiff need to start picking up results when they return to action.
