After taking the lead in the 9th minute through Thompson, Rovers let Cardiff back into the game in the 25th minute when McAnuff equalised for the Bluebirds, before Thompson scored with a bizarre goal just after the half hour mark.

Within 2minutes of the restart Rovers went 3 – 1 up through Pederson, but within 10 minutes Collins scored for Cardiff to make it 3 – 2.

Final Score Rovers 3 Cardiff 2.

In his post match interview skysports are quoting Mark Hughes as saying.

"It was a poor game from our point of view, We never really played at any stage in the game.

"We possibly got stuck into the kind of game that Cardiff wanted to play, but fair play to them, they were energetic, they got up to the ball which at times we didn't do, we made it a hard night.

"We kept getting forced back on the long balls, we needed to be more brave and keep a high line and then drop at the last moment.

"We didn't get our line right and that made the game too open and fair play to Cardiff they play that game week-in week-out and in the end we got sucked into playing a similar type of game.

"We are thankful that we got the result and are in the hat but we can do better than that. We let our standards drop today. We didn't get beat so that's something to be pleased about."
