Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says that he knows that his side are capable of playing better football, after the Welsh side began their campaign with a 1-1 draw with Blackburn Rovers last night.
Kenwyne Jones scored the first goal of the Football League season in the 18th minute to give Cardiff the lead, however this was cancelled out by Tom Cairney, who scored from 25-yards out to beat David Marshall. Neither side threatened to add another goal in a scrappy second half.
Solskjaer told BBC Sport that Cardiff have room to improve:
“We can play loads better football than this but we dug out a result,”
“It was never going to be a pretty game.
“It’s the first game, it’s away from home and they don’t let you settle.”
Cardiff City now face a Capital One cup clash on Wednesday with League One side Coventry City, and the Norwegian manager is likely to rotate his starting eleven.
“I don’t think Macheda will be ready for Wednesday, but Javi Guerra will be ready,” the former Manchester United striker said.
“Players need more game time and there will be players who haven’t played 90 minutes in pre-season that will get a game.”
