Taff's Well 0 - 1 Cardiff City. FT

Last updated : 14 July 2017 By Michael Morris

Cardiff City started four new signings at Taff's Well tonight as the Bluebirds beat the hosts 1 - 0.

The goal came from Anthony Pilkington after just six minutes but soon after the Irish international was subbed with an injury.

Report from CCFC

Neil Etheridge, Loic Damour, Nathaniel Mendez-Laing and Danny Ward all started the match. Lee Tomlin was watching from the sidelines after his move from Bristol City this week.


Neil Warnock was a bit frustrated after the game as he prepares his squad for the new season which starts in three weeks. Next week he takes his squad to Devon and Cornwall for three games.

"We'll be training everyday next week even though I know we've got three games as well, " he said. "We're just building it up.

"I enjoyed the experience but I didn't enjoy the game, to be honest. That's nothing to do with Taff's Well but I get a little bit frustrated when you've not done any tactics and you want to score more goals. But now we have a good week down in Cornwall and we won't do so many changes down there.

"There's some good facilities and some good pitches down there, not too dissimilar to this (Taff's Well), so I'm looking forward to it."

City face AFC Tavistock, Bodmin Town and Plymouth Argyle in the space of five days before returning to South Wales.

There's an away friendly at Shrewsbury to come as well.
