Another Glorious Chance For Cardiff City

In recent weeks Cardiff City have played after our rivals with the late kick-off last Saturday and a slightly later one on Tuesday. Both those fixtures allowed other results to be decided, and on both occasions there were some excellent results for the Bluebirds.

This weekend, Cardiff City face Barnsley and are playing on Sunday. There was a full fixture list yesterday and once again, results were better than we could have expected.

Swansea City continued their poor run of form with a shock 2-1 defeat away at struggling Derby County. That follows a defeat to Scunthorpe and a midweek draw with Watford for the Swans. Nottm Forest will be disappointed after being held to a goalless draw by Doncaster Rovers. Thats on the back of defeats to Sheff Utd and Hull City.

Norwich City were big winners during the week with a huge win over Leicester City. They alone of the top clubs are in good form and like Cardiff did not play yesterday, the Canaries will have been buoyed by weekend results and will be watching this afternoons match with interest ahead of their Monday clash with Bristol City.

Leeds United saw their run of successive wins ended after being held by Ipswich Town. The Whites have stormed back into contention, and followed up a thrashing of Doncaster with another win over Preston. They occupy 6th place in the table but are well placed and remain a threat after a run of poor form in Jan/Feb.

Shock of the day came at Turf Moor when play-off hopefuls Burnley were trounced 3-0 by away side Millwall. Hull City and Leicester City remain in contention after wins over Coventry City and Scunthorpe respectively.

QPR continued their relentless surge up the table, and it looks likely only a points deduction over the Faurlin affair can stop them getting promoted. A 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace saw the R's extend their lead to a full 10 points despite a midweek loss at Millwall.

All the above means nothing if Cardiff City fail to capitalise later today against Barnsley. We lost at home to Ipswich Town last week, and away at Crystal Palace in midweek - on both occasions failing to find the net. A win against mid-table Barnsley is crucial and would see the Bluebirds leap into second place.
