Russell Slade fuming at Cardiff City 'mugging'

Cardiff boss Russell Slade bemoans his side's 'mugging' in their late Championship defeat to Charlton Athletic.

Russell Slade has revealed that Cardiff City's late 2-1 defeat to Charlton Athletic this afternoon has left him feeling like he has been "mugged".

Federico Macheda broke the deadlock on 56 minutes as the Bluebirds looked on course for a first home win since January 10.

However, Tony Watt drew Charlton level in the final quarter before Yoni Buyens converted an 87th-minute penalty to seal a smash-and-grab win for the Addicks.

"We dominated 75 per cent of that game so it is frustrating to say the least that we have lost. You could say we have been mugged," the Cardiff boss told Sky Sports News.

"We dominated for long periods and should have put the three points to bed but we have to learn to manage the game for the whole 90 minutes."

City sit 15th in the Championship table.
