Caulker the hero as Cardiff edge Swansea in intense derby

Steven Caulker was quick to ensure he did not celebrate in the faces of Swansea City as he scored the only goal in a tough south Wales derby on Sunday.

The 21-year old defender headed Cardiff City in front in the 62nd minute to give the club all three points but made sure he was respectful of the Swans where he spent time on loan two seasons ago.

"It was really intense, especially the last 10 minutes when we were sort of clinging on, but the boys have done really well and stuck together," the former Tottenham man told Sky Sports.

"It was a different experience playing against them today. I enjoyed my time there, but I'm a Bluebird.

"I was thankful to get the win for us, and even more pleased to get the goal. I always respect the teams I've played for. They took me in a couple of years ago, so there's no hard feelings."
