Russell Slade praises "ruthless" Cardiff City

Russell Slade praises his Cardiff City players for the "ruthless" streak that they showed away at Rotherham United.

Cardiff City manager Russell Slade has expressed his delight at the clinical quality that his side showed away at Rotherham United last night.

The visiting Bluebirds scored three goals in the space of 11 first-half minutes at the New York Stadium to secure their victory, with the only blot being a late consolation strike from Rotherham's Danny Ward.

Speaking to reporters after the final whistle, Slade said: "We are very pleased with the result. We got the ball down, created the opportunities and, most importantly, we took them.

"If you look at the chances and opportunities we had I thought it was a really good away performance. We made the right decisions. We were ruthless in the final third particularly in the first half. It's a good thing moving forward."

The win has moved Cardiff up to 13th in the Championship standings.
