WAIT AND SEE: Morison unsure on future after caretaker stint
PA - Simon Galloway
Cardiff caretaker-manager Steve Morison staked his claim to replace Mick McCarthy on a permanent basis as Kieffer Moore’s late double earned his side a vital 2-1 victory at home to Huddersfield.
Wales international Moore headed home 16 minutes from time to cancel out Danel Sinani’s first-half opener for the visitors and then crashed in a stoppage-time winner to end the Bluebirds’ 10-game winless streak.
Moore’s goals kept struggling Cardiff out of the bottom three in what could be Morison’s final match in charge and he admitted that he was in the dark over his future.
Asked if he would continue in the job, Morison said: “Your guess is as good as mine. We’ll just have to watch this space.
“Ultimately, you’re only as good as your last game. I’ve loved it. It’s been a great experience. It’s a job I’ve thoroughly enjoyed doing over the past few weeks.”
“It’s fantastic,” said Morison. “Everyone needed it. The whole place needed it, the boys in that dressing room more than anyone. It will get the fans right back behind us again.
“The players were excellent. Take that goal out of it, which was a horrendous goal to give away, and I thought we dominated.”
There were contrasting emotions for Huddersfield boss Carlos Corberan, whose side drop to eighth in the table.
“We dropped too deep at the end,” he admitted. “To lose with the last action of the game is difficult to accept.
“In football you have to kill the result. We had the opportunities but we couldn’t score the second goal.
“It’s a painful moment for us. We are frustrated but we have the character to react and get the results that we want.”
