Cardiff 1-0 West Brom: Beating West Brom important - Malky Mackay

Cardiff boss Malky Mackay says beating West Brom 1-0 at home is an important result against a team close to the Bluebirds near the foot of the Premier League table.

Peter Whittingham's second-half header moved Cardiff four points clear of the bottom three and inflicted a fourth straight defeat on the Baggies.

Whittingham's effort ended a run of 335 minutes without a Premier League goal for Cardiff.
