Cardiff pile pressure on Rovers

Published Add your comment

Cardiff heaped further pressure on Blackburn manager Steve Kean as goals from Kenny Miller and Anthony Gerrard in a 2-0 victory put the Welsh club into the last four of the Carling Cup for the first time since 1966.

Scotland striker Miller opened the scoring in the 19th minute with a low left-footed finish and Gerrard sealed the win by nodding home five minutes after the break after Blackburn keeper Mark Bunn had failed to deal with a corner.

At the other end David Goodwillie had his headed effort well saved by Cardiff keeper Tom Heaton and Scott Dann also nodded wide, but in truth Rovers were well beaten and the visiting support made clear their dissatisfaction with repeated chants of "Kean out".
