Alex Revell: Cardiff City striker hoping for change of luck

Alex Revell scores for Cardiff at Brentford

Cardiff City striker Alex Revell hopes his winning goal at Brentford will be the start of a good run of form for himself and the team.

The Bluebirds are 14th winning 2-1 at Griffin Park and face Championship leaders Bournemouth tonight.

Revell's goal was only his second for Cardiff since joining from Rotherham in January.

"It was difficult when I came in because we were on a bit of a run which rocked us a little bit," he said.

"But the performances recently have all picked up. We've all shown more desire and I think it's now harder to play against us.

"For me that's when I feel I can show people how good I am."

Manager Russell Slade says Cardiff are making progress following their victory at promotion chasing Brentford.

Andre Gray gave the home side a first-half lead, but goals from Federico Macheda and Revell secured the win.

Cardiff ended the game with nine men after after Kadeem Harris and Macheda were sent-off,

But Revell says the victory showed Cardiff's intent to end the campaign strongly, with nine games remaining.

"It proves to people we are really committed to the cause. We all want to get it right," Revell said.

"We know it's been a disappointing season to be where we are and we all want to get it right."

"We've just got to keep going. We've come here [Brentford] and proved the point and we've got another big game on Tuesday against a difficult side.

Cardiff next face a Bournemouth side that have beaten them twice this season.

Eddie Howe's side won 3-0 at Cardiff City Stadium in the Capital One Cup in August before a 5-3 league win at Dean Court in December.
