Swansea City fans "gutted" after loss
CARDIFF City have claimed bragging rights in the south Wales derby with a 1-0 victory against Swansea City.
Despite fans dreaming of victory, their dreams were dashed twice - once to see Steven Caulker head the ball into the back of the net and again when goalkeeper Michel Vorm was sent off in the 90th minute.
Fans had packed bars on Wind Street and given optimistic predictions of wins of up to 4-0.
After the full time whistle, fans said they were devastated by the result.
Swans fan Alex Rees said: "I'm gutted. In the second half we didn't look interested. We didn't look like we wanted it.
"Cardiff looked marginally more interested than us," he said. "There was no urgency about us. It was probably a fair result, I don't like to say that but they looked more interested."
"February will come soon and it'll be a different story at home," he added.
Gwion Lewis was at the match. "I'm absolutely gutted. We did play well but after the goal it went downhill and we didn't play as well as we should have."
