Mackay hails Cardiff's English players for Man Utd draw

Cardiff City boss Malky Mackay hailed his English players for their draw with Manchester United.

There were six English players in the Cardiff starting line-up against United, the joint-second highest of the weekend's fixtures, and Mackay was particularly pleased with the players who made up the spine of his side.

Mackay said: "Ben Turner and Caulker at the back were sublime.

"You look at Fraizer Campbell, Peter Whittingham, Caulker and Turner, there is young English talent there playing at Premier League level.

"And if they play consistently well, that's when the net that is cast wide to find English talent in the Premier League may glance down on them at some point."
