The 30-year-old centre-back came under criticism - along with a number of other Bluebirds players - after the shock 5-4 defeat to Hudson's former club Charlton last week.

The defender responded in the best possible manner with a fine display capped by the 82nd minute winner - his 10th goal for Cardiff.

"He leads by example and scores important goals for our football club," Mackay told the Bluebirds' official website.

"I received questions querying Mark Hudson and his worth to the football club. You will not see his worth to the football club until he leaves the football club and that will not be under me. He has had 15 months under me where he has been exceptional both on and off the pitch."

Cardiff's perfect home record will come under scrutiny on Saturday when second-place Middlesbrough, a side one point and one place above the Bluebirds, make the long trip to South Wales.

othing screams 'Panic!!' when your new manager brings Fellaini on as a sub for your star signing of the summer and within 5 minutes you concede the winner. I know it is only the first game in but I would seriously be sh1**ng myself I was a Man Utd supporter. This has the potential of being very nasty indeed.

n the words of Pete Townsend, meet the new boss, the same as the old boss. Though I would comment that it's 3 more points than we picked up in the same fixture last year, so that's a 100% improvement.
