Cardiff need miracle to survive, admits Solskjaer

Cardiff City manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has conceded that his side will need a miracle if they are to escape relegation from the Premier League after the Bluebirds lost 3-0 at home to Crystal Palace, BBC Sport has reported.

Solskjaer began the game against their relegation rivals with a very attack-minded starting line-up, only for to be frustrated by a Crystal Palace side who eventually took the lead on 31 minutes. Jason Puncheon was the scorer; the former Southampton player given plenty of time on the edge of the penalty area to fire a shot past David Marshall.


And things did not get any better in the second half for Cardiff, who are now just a point off the bottom and six adrift of safety. First, Joe Ledley scored against his former club as he turned the ball in from close range after Marshall had saved from Marouane Chamakh, before Puncheon rounded things off with a delightful curling shot two minutes from time.


After the game, Solskjaer said: "We need to produce a miracle to stay up now. There was a lack of belief a little bit towards the end. We ran out of ideas. "It was a big game for us and I am very disappointed for the fans and players that we ended up with a performance like this.


"I am full of fight. If you produce a miracle - that sometimes happens in football - you are still capable of getting out of this and staying in the Barclays Premier League.


"It has been a tough season for everyone involved with the club. In the second half it showed a little bit that it has taken its toll."
