Cardiff City Out To Storm Lacklustre Palace

Cardiff City travel to Crystal Palace tomorrow with the Eagles having little but pride to play for this season, in stark contrast to the Bluebirds who are yet to give up all hope on securing an automatic promotion place but need points to cement a play-off place.


The Eagles were hopeful of a play-off place themselves prior to the season but it has not been a great season and they sit comfortably in mid-table in thirteenth place with 53 points. They did look well set prior to Christmas but a number of poor results set them on an alarming slide.


Palace have won just 4 from their last 18 league games, with half of those games ending in defeat. At less than a point per game, that`s relegation form. However, they have recently dented the play-off hopes of two of our rivals by defeating Preston North End and Swansea City - of great help to the Bluebirds with both clubs loitering just outside the top six.


This will not be an easy game by any means and whilst the home clash against Burnley (on Monday) looks more important on paper, it is hugely important that we do not lose. You would think that we will have more desire, hunger and urgency than the Selhurst Park outfit but that`s not how boss Neil Warnock works. The animated former Sheffield United boss (and supporter) would like to beat us to help his former club aswell as himself who I`m sure he`d admit - is not a good loser on any day.


The Eagles have netted 9 goals in the last 11 games, hardly impressive especially with just one in the previous three matches. They played on Tuesday so will be fresher than our squad and it seems likely that many will be playing for their futures.


Three points well and truly up-for-grabs for the Bluebirds, defeat is unthinkable….
