West Brom 3 Cardiff 3: Mats Moller Daehli insists that the Bluebird remain convinced that they can avoid relegation
Mats Moller Daehli insisted that Cardiff City will fight to the death in their bid to avoid relegation after his late equaliser earned a dramatic draw at West Bromwich Albion.
The visitors had already come from behind once at The Hawthorns when Jordon Mutch and Steven Caulker cancelled out early goals from Morgan Amalfitano and Graham Dorrans.
We still believe we can stay up. It’s a chance to show character

Thievy Bifouma’s stoppage-time strike looked to have won it for the home side, but Daehli’s 95th-minute equaliser snatched a vital point.
“I thought we deserved the goal because we played really well in the second half,” Daehli told BBC Sport.
“I had once chance before and missed it, so I kept thinking ‘I need another chance’. So I was so happy when I got it.
“The message from the manager is ‘never give up’ and he tells us that we earn our luck.
“We still believe we can stay up. It’s a chance to show character and that’s what we have done today.”
Cardiff remain 18th in the table, three points behind 17th-placed West Brom.
