Former Swan Penney Backs Cardiff City

Former Swan Penney Backs Cardiff City

Former Swansea City and Cardiff City player David Penney has backed the Bluebirds to triumph in the hotly anticipated South Wales derby this weekend - citing our attacking firepower as the main strength. Midfielder Penney made over 100 appearances for the Swans before moving East to join Cardiff City where he made 63 appearances for the Bluebirds. He later joined Doncaster Rovers, before going on to manage Donny.

Speaking on BBC Radio Wales, Penney was asked whether he would rather face Cardiff City or Swansea City if he was still manager of Rovers:

"I haven`t seen that much of Swansea, but I covered Cardiff`s game against Doncaster for local radio. They just look to have so much firepower, and you`ve got to score goals to win games. I know Bothroyd`s missing, but there`s Keogh to come in and the firepower makes them slight favourites."

Bellamy, Bothroyd and Chopra all started in that match, the debut for Bellamy in which he scored a superb 35-yard free-kick. However, Chopra was withdrawn early on in the game, while Bellers went on to miss the next few fixtures with his knee injury.

Penney suggested Andy Keogh may be called upon to deputise for the suspended Jay Bothroyd, however, an alternative option for Dave Jones would be the inclusion of an extra midfielder to match Swansea`s likely formation and allow widemen Bellamy and Burke to push on.
