Malky Mackay: 'We need to be more clinical'

Cardiff City boss Malky Mackay believes that his side need to be more "clinical" with their chances following their defeat to Crystal Palace.

Cardiff City boss Malky Mackay has admitted that his side need to be more "clinical" in front of goal following their defeat to Crystal Palace.

Fraizer Campbell had the chance to hand the Bluebirds the lead but missed it, and minutes later Cameron Jerome put Tony Pulis's side ahead.

Mackay told BBC Sport: "I think first five minutes we have a fantastic chance we should have scored. We don't and they go down the other end and score theirs. You can't allow teams their chances and not take their own.

"I'm not particularly concerned at the lack of goals, if we weren't creating chances I'd be worried.

"We just need to get back onto it again and be clinical. We scored twice against Manchester United and I know I have lads in the dressing room who will get me goals."

Cardiff are 16th in the Premier League following their defeat.
