Solskjaer intends to keep shaking up Cardiff tactics

Cardiff City boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he'll keep shaking up his tactics after defeat to Tottenham.

Solskjaer employed a three-man central defence at White Hart Lane, but is refusing to stick to one specific formation.

Keen to switch to the structure that best fits the opposition, the former Manchester United poacher hailed the performances of Gary Medel and captain Steven Caulker.

"We had three very good centre-backs out there, and I can't say any players played out of position," said Solskjaer, refusing to blame Roberto Soldado's decisive goal on the change of formation.

"I thought Gary Medel was outstanding, and Caulker was excellent too.

"It suited us on Sunday, I think the players performed really well in that system, we got hold of the centre midfield as well.

"We conceded a sloppy goal, a disappointing goal, but that wasn't because of the shape, it was because we were caught on the break.

"I thought that was suitable to play at Spurs away."
