Mackay hails Cardiff's 'momentum and consistency'

Malky Mackay says he's 'delighted' with Cardiff City's 'momentum and consistency', after they won 1-0 away at Birmingham City. The Bluebirds are now seven points clear at the top of the Championship, after closest challengers Hull City drew at Blackpool.

Mackay said 'it is about making sure about the game you are in and keep chalking them off. It was a professional-like performance. It has been a tough period but we have the momentum and consistency which I am delighted about.'
