Norwich Boss Has No Fears Over Bluebirds Test

Norwich Boss Has No Fears Over Bluebirds Test

Cardiff City entertain fellow high-fliers Norwich City this weekend, looking to extend our recent good run of form and put distance between ourselves and the chasing pack at the top of the Championship.

This will be a difficult game, with newly promoted Norwich City adapting very well to life in this division, and possessing a good squad, capable of mounting a sustained push for the play-offs, even in their fiurst season back at this level.

Follwoint the public humiliation of Leeds United on Monday, many teams are becoming increasingly wary of Cardiff City, especially the potent attacking line-up including Bothroyd, Bellamy, Chopra and Burke. However, Canaries boss Paul Lambert insists his side have no reason to fear the Bluebirds and can be confident of achieving a result if they play to their capabilities.

Speaking at an open fans forum for NCFC, Lambert said:

"I don`t have any fear going there. I know full well how hard it is going to be. Looking at them the other night they were very, very good but as I have said before on any given day you can beat anyone over the course of the season. I don`t think there is any question they will be there or thereabouts.

"Cardiff do look strong but I know on our day we can match them, although it will be really, really tough. The way our lads are playing I don`t have any fear as long as they can give me every bit of effort then hopefully we will be okay."


Norwich City will clearly pose a stern test and have already taken points from league leaders QPR this term. AS the home team, the onus will be on Cardiff City to press the advantage and dominate play, but our attack-heavy line-up will always be vulnerable on the counter attack and we remain uneasy at set-pieces.

The match is close to a sell-out in the home end, hopefully we will see an entertaining game and another classy performance from the Bluebirds.
