Russell Slade rues damaging defeat for Cardiff City

29 December 2014

Russell Slade admits Cardiff City are "not in a good place" after suffering a damaging 4-2 defeat at home to Watford.

Cardiff slipped to 12th place in the Sky Bet Championship table and are now nine points off the play-offs after a fifth game without a win saw home fans turn on the new manager.

Slade, appointed in October to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has been in charge for only 13 games but is coming underincreasing pressure to halt the slump.

Slade said: "The fans are entitled to their opinions and when the team is not playing well, as we are, then you have to expect that situation to arise.

"But when you are stood on the sidelines and have done for as many games as I have, in my career, you are only focused on finding a way back into the game.

"It's inevitable that you come under pressure when results are not going your way and it's frustrating [at] times for us.

"I'm sure that the owner [Vincent Tan], like me, is not over-enthralled with the results right now. But I have to be tunnel-visioned and we will keep working hard."
