"At ten to four it was looking fantastic. At ten to five it was embarrassing," Clark said. "We’re deeply embarrassed by that second-half. To concede seven goals in any game, never mind a half, is very disappointing and frustrating.

"You just can’t play like we did in the second-half, at any level. We’ll take all the flack that is going to come our way in the next few days, and rightly so."

Juan Cala asks Cardiff to show him 'respect'

Cala has only featured three times for the Championship club this season, with two of those appearances coming in the Capital One Cup.

New manager Russell Slade has instead opted to use Sean Morrison, Ben Turner and Bruno Manga as his preferred central defenders.
