Cardiff slumps to worst home defeat in 14 years, crushed by Hull 4-0 in Premier League

  • Print

CARDIFF, Wales - Cardiff had its worst home defeat in 14 years on Saturday with its 4-0 loss to Hull in the Premier League raising doubts over the future of Bluebirds boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

A deflected shot from Tom Huddlestone in the 18th minute, a brace from the clinical Nikica Jelavic either side of the interval and a goal on the counterattack from Jake Livermore in the 67th pushed Hull firmly into mid-table.

Cardiff is down in 19th place, three points and at least nine goals from safety with 11 matches of the season left.

Solskjaer reverted to using Kenwyne Jones and top-scorer Fraizer Campbell up front, in pursuit of the cutting edge that has been lacking from the Welsh side's play for much of the season. The pair had plenty of chances but failed to convert any.
