Cardiff City must sign striker to end goal drought

Cardiff City manager Paul Trollope

Cardiff City have so far played four games this season but have failed to score a single goal.

If there is one thing that Cardiff's start to the season has shown, it is that the Welsh club need another striker before the close of the transfer window.

The Bluebirds have played four games this season but have failed to score a goal.

Cardiff need a striker who is hard-working and a good finisher who will most importantly score goals. Manager Paul Trollope succeeded Russell Slade as manager in May, and it will take time for players to adapt to a new system, but with a few games already played it is clear to see that the Bluebirds lack quality up top.

Fans of the club have every right to criticise Trollope and the team, as recent performances have showed no signs that Cardiff can fight for promotion. 

Cardiff remain confident that they will be able to add to their squad before the transfer window closes. Trollope is on the look-out for a striker, full-back and goalkeeper.

What fans want to see, though, is a striker who will be able to end their goal drought.

Cardiff currently sit 14th in the Championship with four points from three games, and a defeat to Bristol Rovers in the EFL Cup last week has left fans frustrated with recent poor performances.

The Bluebirds won their first game of the season at home to Blackburn Rovers on Wednesday. However, both of their goals came from Blackburn defender Shane Duffy.    

Cardiff face Fulham on Saturday and fans will be hoping that the Bluebirds finally will be able to find the back of the net.
