Cardiff City manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has cancelled his players' warm-weather training trip to Abu Dhabi following the 4-0 defeat at home to Hull yesterday.

The Norwegian had been planning to take the relegation-threatened Bluebirds out to the United Arab Emirates today to sharpen up ahead of their trip to fifth-placed Tottenham at White Hart Lane in a week's time.

But after watching his charges thrashed by the Tigers, suffering their biggest home defeat since losing 4-0 to Cambridge United in April 2000, Solskjaer confirmed he had changed his mind in favour of some intensive preparation in wintry Wales.
