Cardiff boss Malky Mackay felt his side's second-half performance merited at least a point after the 2-1 defeat at Middlesborough.

Malky Mackay disappointed with Teesside trip

The league leaders trailed to first-half goals from Kieron Dyer and Sammy Ameobi but pulled one back through Ben Nugent in a stirring fightback after the break.

The Bluebirds created plenty of chances for a leveller but some profligate finishing saw them leave Teesside without a point.

"I felt we probably deserved a point on the basis of that second-half performance," said Mackay.

"We shot ourselves in the foot a bit and we gave away two goals which we would normally never concede and that made it very difficult.

"But we put in a spirited second half and we got one back and to be honest we had enough chances to have got the leveller."

Rodgers: No defence coach

T

hat's it for me, that's ego talking and nothing more. Three seasons in and he still hasn't resolved the issues in defence. This won't end well, he doesn't have the skills needed to sort out the back four and isn't prepared to bring in those who do. This is the worst team I've seen since the late days of Houllier. Brendan...you're fired.
