Carey Targets Cardiff City Revenge Mission

Carey Targets Cardiff City Revenge Mission

Cardiff City last played the Severnside derby against rivals Bristol City back in January 2010. The Bluebirds produced a stunning performance to record a 6-0 win over the lacklustre Robins courtesy of goals from Chopra (2), McCormack (2), Whittingham and a Liam Fontaine own goal. That win was on the back of a 3-0 home victory when even Gavin Rae got on the scoresheet to add to a Chopra strike and a McCombe own goal.

To say those defeats would have hurt Bristol City is somewhat of an understatement with a 9-0 aggregate scoreline against local rivals we have met regularly over the past decade. The results certainly do not represent a real difference between the sides and although we finished the season in fourth place, the Robins are always comfortably mid-table and finished only a few points outside the play-off positions themselves.

While Bristol City have less cause for optimism this time round (Cardiff are second, while the Robins lie rock bottom), such games are always impossible to predict and Bristol City will surely come good at some point and end the season well outside the relegation zone. One man who is desperate to dispel the demons of last season`s humiliation is BCFC captain Louis Carey. The defender is gunning for revenge and sees Cardiff City as a perfect place to turn his side`s fortunes around. Carey told the Bristol Evening Post:

"I wanted the ground to open up and swallow me. I've been in sides that have let in six goals before, but that one was different. It hurt the players and it was a bitter pill to have to swallow."
"Our fans will want revenge and we know we're playing for more than just three points on Saturday. It's about pride, putting the record straight and giving our supporters something to shout about."
"I had a lot of support from family and friends after the 6-0 defeat and it was good to know that people were still talking to me and still liked me. I want to beat Cardiff for all those people who stood by me."
"Beating Cardiff at their place would mean so much and would be a massive kick-start to our season."

A positive start and defensive concentration should provide Cardiff City with a good platform to go out and win the game. We have good players, in better form and confidence than Bristol City, while both sets of players will look to draw strength from the atmosphere and crowd. A defeat for the Bluebirds looks unlikely on paper, and that`s exactly when Cardiff City fans know we need to worry….no complacency!
