Solskjaer proud of Cardiff players after Southampton shock

Cardiff City boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was proud of his players after victory at Southampton A wonderful strike from the unlikely source of centre-back Juan Cala secured a 1-0 victory in a match dominated from start to finish by Saints.

"It was a good performance," the Cardiff boss said. "We've had some very good performances before that I've been proud of, but I have been sat here talking about bad luck and missed chances.

"But today, of course, we got that little bit of luck that you need in a game.

"They were all fantastic. They all did their jobs - every single one. It's not just the 11, it's the subs as well, even ones that don't come on and it's the ones that travel.

"The atmosphere in the changing room was great afterwards.

"Before today I don't think many expected us to come here and take points. We were six points behind, now we're three points behind.

"We have four games to go. Fulham, Swansea, Norwich and West Brom are still in it with us, but we've just got to do our job. We still need some help but it's been a wonderful week."
