Wurzels Plan 'Aggressive' Treatment For Bellamy

Wurzels Plan 'Aggressive' Treatment For Bellamy

Cardiff City manager Dave Jones has the luxury of selecting a forward line from Bothroyd, Chopra, Koumas, Burke, Keogh and Craig Bellamy for tomorrow's visit of Bristol City.

With the return of Chopra, Jones can therefore look to rotate Criag Bellamy to limit his appearances to the 1 game per week policy which saw him impress for Manchester City last season. He will therefore feature against Bristol City, or be kept back for the trip to Coventry.

That can't be an easy situation for Bristol City in terms of preparation since the right back must prepart to face the very different threats of Bellamy (pace, running, trickery), Chopra (pace in behind, looking to move central), Koumas (classy running, drifting infield or Andy Keogh (not yet sure!).

However, Bristol City's manager Keith Millen has revealed his side will be preparing to face Bellamy, and will need to be 'aggressive' to deal with the former Liverpool and Newcastle United man.

Millen told the SW Echo:


"Dealing with Bellamy is something we will talk about. We have to be strong and aggressive with him."

"We`ve got to defend properly and not give him too much space to run into. He is a willing runner down the sides."

"He has that fiery temperament and he will look forward to a derby game like this. but it's not all about Craig Bellamy. Cardiff have a lot of big players."



Bellamy's knee has been the subject of much scrutiny, and his withdrawal from the Wales squad was controversial just days before playing for the Blubirds in an away win at Barnsley. The International break allowed Craig to rest the knee, and he is now ready to feature again - if called upon by Jones.


Cardiff City fans will (almost) always give 100% backing to our players on the pitch, you can also support a fantastic cause by donating to the Craig Bellamy Foundation. Further information about Bellamy`s excellent work to promote footballing and academic development for African youngsters is available via the links. Please help support if you can.
