Cardiff City lost 1-0 to Nottingham Forest in the Championship last night.
Neil Harris side welcomed promotion hopefuls Forest last night and things proved to be a rather scrappy affair.
Fans were treated to a painfully boring experience in South Wales. Despite there being over 35 shots in the game, Cardiff, in particular, failed to play any kind of football until late on.
Tiago Silva’s goal shortly after half-time proved to be the winner for Forest, who moved into 3rd-place after Brentford were beaten at Luton Town, and with Fulham in action against Swansea tonight.
The main talking point from the game though was an incident after full-time involving Cardiff players Leandro Bacuna and Callum Paterson.
Bacuna appeared to grab Paterson by the throat in an angered row on the pitch, and it’s got a lot of Cardiff fans talking about the current atmosphere at the club.

Bacuna and Paterson scrapping. Poor to see on a bad night for Cardiff.

Missed opportunity for Cardiff tonight given results elsewhere. Didn't ever really look like winning that.
Drab display that does little for play-off hopes. Paterson and Bacuna involved in a lively exchange of ideas afterwards too.
Not a great night. #Bluebirds

Not sure what happened with Bacuna and Paterson at full-time… Bit of afters.
Note to self: Only watch Cardiff from 80+ mins – as they don’t seem to play football until then.
My last words of the night – that was a terrible game of football.
Good night! 😴

It was more of a fight between bacuna and Paterson at the end of the game then what it was in the full 90 minutes

Shocking to see Paterson and Bacuna almost have a scrap at the end of the game

Paterson rightly having a go at Bacuna.
