Cardiff City manager Russell Slade: 'We lacked killer instinct'

Cardiff City boss Russell Slade says that his side should have been able to kill the game off before half time in their 2-2 draw against Sheffield Wednesday.

Cardiff City boss Russell Slade has rued his side's lack of killer instinct in their 2-2 draw against Sheffield Wednesday.

The Bluebirds took a 2-0 lead into the break after a strike from the penalty spot from Craig Noone and a goal from Anthony Pilkington put them in control of the match.

However, Wednesday staged a second-half comeback as Fernando Forestieri and Barry Bannan found the net to earn Carlos Carvalhal's men a point at the Cardiff City Stadium.

Slade told BBC Sport: "We had chances to kill the game off at the end of the first half and the start of the second half. But we looked open at times and for their goals we have simply not done our jobs.

"It is a balancing act we need to get right. It is not about any one man, we have to do the basics as a team.

"If you don't they prove costly. You have to get to the ball, close down, make a block and defend properly. It's about discipline."

Cardiff dropped to seventh in the Championship as a result of the draw.
