Cardiff boss Solskjaer admits they need "miracle" to stay up

Cardiff City boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admits they need a "miracle" to stay up after their 3-0 home defeat to Crystal Palace.

Former Cardiff player Joe Ledley scored Palace's second goal, in between strikes from Jason Puncheon, as the Londoners continued their spectacular revival under manager Tony Pulis.

"It was a big game for us, and I am very disappointed for the fans and players that we ended up with a performance like this," Cardiff manager Solskjaer said.

"If you produce a miracle - that sometimes happens in football - you are still capable of getting out of this and staying in the Barclays Premier League.

"I am full of fight. It has been a tough season for everyone involved with the club. Today in the second half, it showed a little bit that it has taken its toll.

"There was a lack of belief a little bit towards the end. We ran out of ideas.

"Players are desperate to perform. I have seen them all week, and you are so disappointed for them and the fans that we produced a performance like we did. Of course they want to stay in the league."
