Ledley's Bluebirds 'Flying' Ahead of Arsenal

Ledley is revelling in a more central role lately after replacing the out-of-form Stephen McPhail, the Bluebirds are unbeaten since that change and under Ledley's stewardship. The Fairwater-born midfielder told BBC Sport:


We can't wait to play Arsenal. We are unbeaten in 10 games and the boys are flying and confidence is high.'

'We will be trying to win against Arsenal.'
