Cardiff City have enjoyed a good season to date and hope to follow it up with promotion to the Premier League. It looks likely that promotion would now have to be won through the play-offs with Wolves and Birmingham City pulling away in the automatic spots. Our success has been built on a rock solid back four and the goalscoring threats of McCormack, Bothroyd and Chopra.
We have perhaps drawn a few too many games to be considered the best team in the division but we do at this moment retain the crown of 'most unbeatable team` with fewer defeats to our name than any other Championship team this season.
Three defeats at home, along with 4 on the road is a pretty impressive record as we head into mid-April. Strangely those home reversals have been to three of the top four sides (Wolves, Birmingham City and Sheffield United) while on the road it has been lowly teams such as Norwich City, Plymouth Argyle and Southampton (all three are relegation threatened clubs) who have caused us the most trouble. QPR are the only team to beat us who are fighting for neither promotion or survival.
Table-topping Wolverhampton Wanderers have tasted defeat on no less than 10 occasions this season, while 2nd place Birmingham City are our closest challengers with 8 defeats (along with Swansea City). As was evident against the Jacks on Sunday, we have developed a gritty and persistent character and simply refuse to give up. A number of late goals have been scored, none more priceless than McCormack`s leveller when the game seemed lost.
There are plenty more points to play for, while we have a couple of games in hand. Cool heads and discipline are needed now and a play-off place should be ours.
