Cardiff City goalkeeper David Marshall admits he's noticed the difference between the Championship and Premier League.

After all, the Scot concedes he's been a lot more involved in games!

"The difference between this season and last, at Championship level, is certainly that I feel more involved in every match," Marshall told the Western Mail.

"We're on the back foot a bit more against top-half sides. We were one of the top teams in the Championship and had more of the ball so my concentration had to be right.

"Now I am involved constantly and there are a lot of players who can shoot from distance. There would only ever be one or two in the Championship, but now we are at a level where every team has special players all over the pitch.

"We have stepped up a level and it's more difficult. The defenders are working a lot harder as well, but that's something we're enjoying."
