Cardiff's Solskjaer holding hope of survival after narrow Tottenham loss

Cardiff City manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is remaining confident of his side's pursuit of survival this season.

The Welsh club were narrowly beaten 1-0 by Tottenham at White Hart Lane on Sunday and although it was a defeat, it was a vast improvement on last weekend's 4-0 hammering at the hands of Hull City.

The Bluebirds remain second bottom on the Premier League table, at least three points from safety, but Solskjaer believes there is enough scope to record the points required to keep their heads above the bottom three come season's end.

"In the context of the last 10 games now, we're looking forward to it because that was a team out there that really worked for each other," the Norwegian told Sky Sports.

"We had a belief in what we did by creating problems for Spurs and could have had something from the game."

Solskjaer added: "Having 2,000 Bluebirds singing is great and towards the end they could see.

"I think they're proud of the players. There were questions after last week (4-0 at home to Hull City). You get a battering in terms of the scoreline.

"But today was a team effort. They could see the team with passion, determination and dedication for the cause. We're coming (with form) into the last 10 games."
