Welsh media praise Ryan Giles' Cardiff display against Hull

Wolves loaned Ryan Giles to Cardiff City for the season when former Molineux boss Mick McCarthy was still their manager.

McCarthy has now been sacked and replaced by Steve Morison, who oversaw their 1-0 defeat at home to Hull City last night.

Giles played the entire 90 minutes of the game and impressed despite the disappointing result.

Wales Online gave Giles a 7/10, which was the same rating they handed to Cardiff’s Star Man Joe Ralls.

Their verdict was: “Grew in confidence after the introduction of Ralls. A constant attacking threat and put in a number of dangerous crosses.”

As per WhoScored, Giles made five key passes, at least two more than anyone in a blue shirt.

He also did his bit defensively, with a tackle, two interceptions and two clearances to his name.

Wolves loaned Giles to Cardiff because they thought his crossing would suit their style of play.

It remains to be seen how Morison taking the reigns impacts on Cardiff’s style of play and Giles’ suitability longer term.

But last night, he put in a strong performance, coming on the back of his eighth assist of the season at the weekend.
