ITFC’s Under 23s suffered their first league defeat since late November on Tuesday (2nd February), following a 4-0 away reverse against Cardiff City.
Town, who headed into the fixture off the back of a four-game undefeated run (three wins and a draw), took a relatively young squad to South Wales for a game which was played in wet conditions. The hosts found themselves 2-0 up after little over twenty minutes and, despite chances for both sides, that’s how the score remained until the 85th minute.
The Bluebirds then added some gloss to the scoreline with a late double to complete a 4-0 win, as all three points remained in the Welsh capital.
The Blues will have the opportunity to return to winning ways tomorrow (Friday 5th February), when Kieron Dyer’s team head to Hertforshire to take on 7th-placed Watford.
Our thanks go to Cardiff City for providing a free live stream, with commentary, for this fixture.
