The highlights of the afternoon were the three goals scored by Michael Chopra and a much needed home win. But the opposition, who were mediocre, nearly snatched a draw after pulling back two late goals at Ninian Park. The crowd of just of 12,000 saw five goals and many mistakes by both teams...

Back to back wins, the only game in the Championship and not a rugby international in sight but less than 12,000 Cardiff fans could be bothered to turn up on Saturday afternoon. The atmosphere was muted at the ground and the visiting fans were certainly among the quietest in memory - they didn't even cheer much when their team scored!

A dire first half was livened with Chopra's first goal from a free kick and he added two more in the second half as the visiting defenders added to their own downfall with some comic moments. Cruising at 3-0 the blebirds then conceded a soft goal and then another..... but they managed to hang on to keep up with the play off contenders. And a win is a win!

But are the public of South Wales bothered?
