'IT ALL WENT PEAR- S S H H A A P P E E D D ' '.
CARDIFF City captain Joe Ledley was almost lost for words after experiencing the worst defeat of his career at Preston.
But he found enough words to describe the Bluebirds' team performance in the 6-0 Championship thrashing as "pear-shaped." "I don't know what to say really, but we were obviously not good enough." said the Welsh international.
"We had more chances than them in the first half, but went into the changing rooms 2-0 down..
"And in the second half it all went pear-shaped and now we must pick ourselves up and get on with it.
"I thought we were the better team in the first half, but, fair enough, after that they came at us." Ledley stressed the Bluebirds are determined not to undo the good work of the season, which has seen them to the brink of the play-offs.
"We have done so well all season," he said. "We know that this must not get to us too much, especially as we have some big games ahead of us.
"The fans were superb, even when we were 5-0 down, and they know we are better then that.
"We just did not defend as a team on this occasion.
"We're not complacent, it was just one of those days and we have to move on.
" We must now hit back at Charlton, and it is just aswell that we have a game so soon." The inquest: Pages 2-5
