Cardiff City were beaten handily by Liverpool today 3-6, but young Jordon Mutch was a bright spot for the Bluebirds, playing a hand in all three Cardiff goals with a brace and an assist.
Mutch had been quiet, dealing with an injury since the beginning of the calendar year, but today he picked up where he left off since hamstring issues limited his playing time. The Bluebirds took an early lead thanks to a Fraizer Campbell pass from the goal line to Mutch who moved left and delivered a left footed strike to finish. Mutch then returned the favor after Liverpool equalized, by sending a through ball to Campbell, and the striker drilled it home. Then, with the game well in hand in the final minutes, Mutch grabbed his second goal of the afternoon with a header. Cardiff travel to West Brom next and while it is difficult to back a Bluebird on the road, let alone at home, Mutch deserves a look as a midfielder to use for the run in.
