Sunderland v Cardiff
Sunderland 2 - 0 Cardiff City
Well done Lads! A great result on a Saturday when everything (well almost) went right for us. A decent strike from Gary Breen before many had taken their seats saw the Bluebirds keeper fumble it into the net for a 1-0 lead.
Andy Welsh undid the Welsh down the left wing and was instrumental in Breen's opener, and overall he had an impressive game, always willing ti attack, get past the full back and put in a cross.
The second goal was another well taken effort from Marcus Stewart, who once again made runs all around the opposition half, taking most of their defenders with him.
The crowd of over 32,000 was boosted by many youngsters on cheap tickets issued to schools as well as a good smattering of part season ticket holders.
My day was soured by the site of hundreds of Cardiff City fans attacking the Wheatsheaf and the Terminus pubs to add to their growing reputation as thugs and hooligans. The police were slow to react (probably because the Welsh had deceptively started a few minor skirmishes in the town centre to tie the police down). It's high time the authorities took firm action and ban Cardiff fans from attending away matches.
On a brighter note both Ipswich and Wigan managed to lose, resulting in all three teams level on 66 points at the top of the table.
