Malky Mackay described Cardiff's 3-0 win over Blackpool as their best performance of the season.

Matthew Connoly's double either side of a Peter Whittingham strike moved the Bluebirds up to second in the Championship table.

"That was our best performance of the season when you consider the team we were up against," said Mackay.

"They are most people's favourites to win the league with the squad they have but we scored three goals, created a lot of chances and kept a clean sheet.

"It was great to get our fourth home win. The stadium is rocking with the fans right behind us and we're looking a real goal threat from all areas of the pitch.

"We got our tactics right, executed the plan perfectly and got stronger as the game went on. We could have scored even more had we taken a few different options but I'm delighted."
