Cardiff City Ready For Rock Bottom Robins

Cardiff City Ready For Rock Bottom Robins

Cardiff City welcome rivals Bristol City to the CCS for an early kick-off tomorrow with the two sides experiencing vastly different seasons so far. The Bluebirds sit in second place, while Bristol City will be frustrated and shocked to find themselves in the bottom position.

Six points from 10 games sees the Robins occupy the 24th position in the Championship. That comes as a surprise to many after several good seasons, followed by a summer of promise as the likes of Sam Vokes and David James were unveiled and expected to bring the experience and quality to kick-on and push for a play-off position.

Players like Marvin Elliot, Liam Fontaine and Louis Carey are all high calibre Championship campaigners while the likes of Clarkson, Campbell-Ryce and Skuse all provide flair and creativity. However, things just aren`t working for the Wurzels of late and manager Millen finds himself already under pressure.

BCFC have just the one victory to date this season, an away win over Scunthorpe United (half the points tally) while 2 of the other three points were also picked up on the road (against Doncaster and Burnley). The results suggest the current Bristol team are more comfortable on the road, with the one solitary home point picked up against Barnsley. Or are Bristol City just better against Northern teams?!?

There can be no suggestion that this will be an easy victory for Cardiff City, despite their poor recent form and previous results. They will undoubtedly be keen to exorcise the demons of a six-nil thrashing back in January this year, and as with all derby games - form is often irrelevant. Cardiff City must be calm, committed and look to outpass the Robins, unleashing the pace of Burke, Chopra and Bellamy.

The Bluebirds start as strong favourites, but remain in patchy form ourselves. A decent crowd is expected, and we must play our part in helping the team shake off the cob-webs of the International break, and returning to action with a welcome victory over of Severnside rivals.
