Blades Ace Tips Cardiff City For Promotion

Blades Ace Tips Cardiff City For Promotion

Sheffield United's Cardiff born attacker David Cotterill has back the Bluebirds for promotion despite helping his side to a 3-0 thumping of our 9 men at Ninian Park on Sunday.


Welsh International Cotterill converted the opening goal (to a chorus of boos), which changed the game completely. The incident left City a goal and a man down earlier on and Cotterill was mercilessly targeted by a bitter home crowd, in disbelief after two terrible decisions ended the game as a contest and cost us a glorious chance to get one over on our rivals.


Despite his hostile reception, and 3-0 win for his side, Cotterill is still backing his hometown club for a promotion spot. He told the SW Echo:


"They are a quality side. They have talented players. Okay, they had a bad day at the office during the match against us, but that certainly doesn`t make them a bad team. They`ll bounce back strongly."


"But that`s all part of football and, while Sheffield United are and must be my top priority, I believe Cardiff City will do well over their remaining matches."



After the disappointment and gifting of three points to the Blades, many Cardiff City fans would love a chance to meet them in the play-offs and this time with a fair encounter. The slightly inflammatory antics of Stephen Quinn and Paddy Kenny wound the Bluebirds support up, and with tensions already high at this stage of the season - a Bluebirds/Blades re-match see see emotions running very high.
