Cardiff City and Millwall are yet to score in their Championship game at The Den. With two wins under his belt, Russell Slade is keen to capitalise on his side's success in his first away match as Manager.
New Cardiff boss Russell Slade says he's not surpassing any of his own expectations following his 100% start to life in the Welsh capital.
The Bluebirds made it two wins from two under the guidance of the former Leyton Orient manager last night - their 3-1 win coming on the back of victory over Nottingham Forest on Saturday.
And Slade says he's not been surprised by the ease with which he's adjusted to life in the Championship.
"I never expect to lose a game, but that's just my mentality. I never go out to try and nick a result. I am going out there to win. I am a football man, I've done 650 games or more as a manager and I know what it's all about. It is just two games but it gives us a bit of momentum and the belief in the players is growing."
Following the win Cardiff moved up to 10th in the table and are within three points of the play-off places.
Russell Slade's squad have gained three points from their Championship clash against Ipswich Town tonight.
The action-packed game saw four goals, three scored by the Bluebirds.
Peter Whittingham managed an impressive strike from 30 yards out in the first half to equalise with Ipswich.
City then took an early lead in the second half thanks to Kiko Macheda, followed by a goal from Adam Le Fondre in the 69th minute.
The crowd's reaction to Whittingham's goal in the first half was caught on camera.
Cardiff City have equalised against Ipswich Town at the Cardiff City Stadium.
Peter Whittingham scored a strike from thirty yards out after 37 minutes in response to a goal from Ipswich's Daryl Murphy.

Russell Slade was named as Cardiff City's manager this evening, after weeks of speculation about his involvement with the club.
The appointment comes after the departure of Ole Gunnar Solksjaer last month.
I have personally offered Russell this opportunity after giving much thought to the needs of the Club at this point in time and firmly believe that he is the right person for the job.
The stability, integrity and experience that he brings is something I feel is essential for Cardiff City. He is capable of turning a group of players into an organised, tight-knit team, with great team spirit, who will work hard for each other while playing an attractive style of football.
I hope he will be able to bring the best out of our squad, and also help to unite everyone associated with the Club. So, let’s all give Russell a chance.
