Cardiff City Are Officially 'Most Unbeatable Team'

Cardiff City Are Officially 'Most Unbeatable Team'

Cardiff City are lying high in the Championship and were denied the chance to continue their impressive form by a frozen Ninian Park pitch when Derby County were due to visit.


However, with the postponemnt of that fixture, and a 3-1 beating handed out to leaders Wolverhampton Wanderers by Preston North End - Cardiff City became the nost difficult team to beat in the Championship.


Prior to that game, Wolves and Cardiff City had been beaten just 4 times this season in the topsy-turvy unpredictable scrap that is the Championship. Now, that title belongs solely to the Bluebirds with Reading and Birmingham City having also racked up 5 defeats apiece.


Our two home defeats were inflicted by Wolves and Birmingham City - both flying high. Away from home Plymouth Argle and QPR both beat us by a goal.


Unfortunately for Cardiff City, despite becoming very difficult to beat - we are still racking up too many draws - 11 in total, only our neighbours Swansea City have drawn more times (14). Of late, we have looked more likely to win our games and if that continues - we remain in good shape for a promotion charge.


Our three games against Reading (2-2, 1-1 and 2-0) prove we need fear no-one in this division and with the Royals surely destined for a play-off place at least - we appear finally to be genuine promotion contenders rather than the also-rans of previous seasons.
