Cardiff City: We must win 'every game', says Jordon Mutch

Midfielder Jordon Mutch says Cardiff City need to win all of their remaining games to survive in the Premier League.

Mutch, 22, scored in Cardiff's 3-3 draw at West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns on Saturday.

The Bluebirds' next game is at home against Crystal Palace, who lead Cardiff by five points after the shock 1-0 win over title-chasing Chelsea.

"From now until the end of the season we need to look to get three points from every game," said Mutch.

  • 5 April - Crystal Palace (h)
  • 12 April - Southampton (a)
  • 19 April - Stoke (h)
  • 27 April - Sunderland (a)
  • 3 May - Newcastle (a)
  • 11 May - Chelsea (h)

"From 20th spot to 16th or 15th everyone is going to be looking to do that, and that isn't necessarily going to happen for every team.

"If we can pick up points over the next three games, we give ourselves a massive chance and put pressure the teams around us."

While Cardiff remain in the bottom three, the draw with West Brom kept alive their hopes of Premier League survival.

The point moved the Bluebirds into 18th place in the Premier the Bluebirds, above Sunderland, who lost 2-1 at home to West Ham on Monday.

"It was a massive point," said Mutch of the draw at the Hawthorns.

"We picked up a point away from home and we would have like the three [points], especially after the way we played in the first 60 minutes.

"We deserved more than a point really.

"The squad we have down here are really close, we stick together and work hard on and off the training pitch so we can get results on a Saturday

"It just shows coming back from their [WBA] first goal what spirit we have got.

"We had belief we could get something and it shows the belief we have in the squad

"We have shown we can pick up the points we need."

Mutch joined the Bluebirds from Birmingham in June, 2012 under former manager Malky Mackay.

The former England-U21 international has become a key player under Mackay's successor Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and has scored seven goals in 31 appearances in 2013-14.

"Obviously I am working very hard everyday to be the best I can be on a Saturday and to keep Cardiff in the Premier League," said Mutch.

"We are all doing that as a team and I will do that for the rest of the season.

"Hopefully, I can bring some more goals to the team and assists."
