Malky Mackay: In positive spirits after Cardiff extend lead to 11 points

Huddersfield had a Neil Danns goal ruled out for a foul but it was a game of few chances and results elsewhere saw Cardiff's lead in the Championship increase to 11 points.

"It's another point gained for us," Mackay said. "We were playing against a team that is now unbeaten in six at home and they are playing for their management.

"They had a five-man midfield with 10 men defending the final third but we have to get used to that. I will always take 0-0 away from home. It keeps us undefeated in a difficult division.

"It was a very tricky pitch, one of the poorest we have played on but it was the same for both teams."

Cardiff defender Kevin McNaughton went off on the stroke of half-time after an accidental elbow left him with a wound which needed stitches, but Mackay said no blame needed to be apportioned for the injury.

"It was just unlucky, there was nothing malicious," said Mackay. "He needed a lot of stitches. It was a full-blooded game but hopefully he'll be ok in a couple of days."

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
