VIDEO: Cardiff players fight with each other after defeat to Nottingham Forest

Cardiff players fight with each other after defeat to Nottingham Forest as as Leandro Bacuna appears to gouge the eye of team-mate Callum Paterson.

The duo had to be separated by their team-mates after clashing heads at full time to top off what turned out to be a dismal evening for the Welsh side.

Cardiff manager Neil Harris played down the incident as ‘passion’.

He said: “In the heat of the moment, I’ve got no problem with that. I’ve got no complaint at all about passion. They came into the dressing room cuddling.”

Harris reflected on his first home defeat since taking charge back in November with the result leaving the Bluebirds 10th, six points off the place off places.

Once again a controversial decision by the referee cost his side a penalty at the end of the first half.

Harris added: “When a referee gets it wrong he goes home and he is all right. For us that is two games in a row here that the referee’s decisions have cost us.

“It was a big moment in the game on the stroke of half-time. Who knows what might have happened if we’d got the penalty and scored it?

“He (Matty Cash) got nowhere near the ball. The ball was the wrong side of the player making the attempt. He kicked Josh (Murphy) and he had no option other than to go over given the speed he was running at, so it’s a penalty for me.

“They were a team we thought we could catch, but that’s going to be difficult now with games running out.

“We have to keep pushing to get back in contention for the play-offs. We need to turn the draws into wins because games are running out.

“We’ve got another huge game at the weekend against Brentford and while there is an opportunity we have just got to keep pushing.”
