Cardiff City boss talks about his side’s performance after reaching the Championship play-offs.
has found a spot in the Sky Bet Championship play-offs after the 4-0 victory over Derby, although
doesn’t want to get carried away with their performance.
“If you lose it’s all doom and gloom and sack the manager,”
Cardiff boss McCarthy said
“Now we’re flying and we’re in the play-offs, we’re getting promoted. You won’t get me carried away with it.
“It’s a lovely time when you’re winning football matches, but you’ve got to win the next one.
“There’s no point getting carried away and having your head in the clouds.
“Everybody gives you a pat on the back but suddenly there’s a knife in their hand. I don’t get carried away by that stuff. There’s a lot of good teams in this league and we’ll just keep pecking away.”
The only bad news for Cardiff fans was Joe Bennett’s knee injury, which seems to be a serious injury.
“He’s not good,”
“I’m not a doctor or a surgeon but he’ll be assessed tomorrow.
“It’s exceptionally tough for him, you could tell it wasn’t right. There will be suspicions of being ligaments and ACL, all that.
“Until he has a scan and the doctors have decided what it is I’m not going to try and attempt to say what it is.
“Everybody will have a guess. When someone goes down and doesn’t move you know he’s hurt and it’s a real sore one.”
