Malky Mackay was delighted to have snatched a last-gasp point at the KC Stadium on Saturday but admitted the story 'is all about Hull' who secured promotion to the Premier League after a nervous conclusion to the Championship season.

Malky Mackay: Was happy with a point but admits 'it's all about Hull tod

Mackay's Cardiff, who were crowned champions of their division almost two weeks ago, snatched a 2-2 draw thanks to Nicky Maynard's penalty five minutes into injury time.

Hull themselves had been awarded a late penalty when they led 2-1 only for Cardiff keeper David Marshall to save Nick Proschwitz's strike.

The equaliser almost scuppered Hull's chances of reaching the top tier of English football but the only team that could have denied them - Watford - were beaten 2-1 by Leeds at Vicarage Road where Ross McCormack netted a 90th minute winner.

Mackay said: "We got the goal back which I think we thoroughly deserved.

"We got off the pitch and allowed Hull to have their day, because this is Hull's day. We got a point and got out of here but congratulations to Steve Bruce and Hull today.

"There's no way I wanted to lose the game and I don't think we deserved to lose the game.

"In Nicky Maynard, Fraizer Campbell and Rudy Gestede I've brought three strikers on at the end trying to win the game.

"But I don't think Steve expects anything different. Steve didn't expect any favours from me today and didn't get any."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
