Cardiff City manager Malky Mackay is overjoyed with his players' "fantastic" performance against Fulham at Craven Cottage.

Cardiff City manager Malky Mackay has hailed his players for their performance against Fulham in the Premier League on Saturday.

A late goal from Jordan Mutch saw the Bluebirds pick up a 2-1 victory at Craven Cottage.

"I thought we were fantastic today, from the first minute," he told Sky Sports News. "I think we ended up with 24 shots at their goal today. But they showed real resilience.

"We've had a tough week, we've had two long away trips this week but we kept going until the end. We put three substitutions on to go and try and win the game and one of them actually ended up scoring.

"So just reward in the end I think. It was a fantastic strike from [Mutch]. He's a top young player but overall I thought it was a really good performance."

Cardiff are currently 11th in the league table with eight points from six matches.
