CARDIFF City boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admits he may have made a mistake in letting Craig Conway leave for Blackburn Rovers.

The winger will come face to face with Solskjaer and his former club tonight when the entire Football League campaign gets under way with a live Sky Sports encounter at Ewood Park.

The former Manchester United star has no doubt Conway will be a major threat to his side’s chances of kicking off the Championship season with a victory.

But Solskjaer, who also allowed Rudy Gestede to join Rovers in January and worked with Corry Evans and Josh King when he was in charge of United’s reserve team, knows the Scotland international will not be the only danger man.

“They have loads of players we know about and one of those is Craig Conway,” said the Norwegian. “He was a player I wasn’t sure I would let go last season but he needed to be playing football.

“I know Corry Evans and Josh King well, Jordan Rhodes I don’t know well but he’s an extremely good goalscorer with great movement.

“So we have to be aware of the frontline they have.

“It’s a tough start for us but why not start in the deep end?”

Solskjaer has just two fit and available centre backs in Matt Connolly and Mark Hudson.

But he yesterday strengthened his midfield options by signing Tom Adeyemi from Birmingham City.
