Scimeca amazed by scoring touch

Scimeca is in a rich vein of scoring form for high-flying Cardiff
Cardiff City midfielder Riccardo Scimeca says he has been as surprised as anyone by his goalscoring exploits.

Scimeca scored his second in as many games in Saturday's win over Wolves, taking him just one short of his best-ever scoring return for a season.

"I'm delighted, but it's unexpected. That's three goals in 10 games," Scimeca told BBC Wales Sport.

"I'll keep getting forward and try to get into those positions, and if I can help out the forwards that's great."

Scimeca, who joined Cardiff from West Brom on a free transfer last season, set Cardiff on their way to a 4-0 win over Wolves on Saturday with a 40th-minute header.

We're a close-knit squad and very down to earth

The victory took the Bluebirds five points clear at the top of the Championship.

And 31-year-old Scimeca said: "Ten games in and 23 points, it's a fantastic start to the season for us.

"We are all enjoying it and the fans are enjoying it too. They turned out in their numbers against Wolves, which was fantastic, and we need more of that.

"It's great, It's good when you're top of the league and you can enjoy yourself."

Despite the terrific start to the season, Scimeca was quick to stress the importance of not putting too much significance on their early-season position.

"We need to keep our feet on the ground," he said. "We're a close-knit squad and very down to earth.

"We work very hard for each other and that's what's got us there so far."
