Back-to-Back Away Days Are Tough Test For City

Cardiff City go into tonight's clash with Millwall on the back of two home wins against tough opposition - games the Bluebirds won, and deserved to win. Firstly we beat Wolves 3-1 courtesy of some exciting attacking football, and ground out a 2-1 win over Leeds thanks to some Bellamy magic and a spirited second half showing.

To follow those games, we now face back-to-back away matches which will be a major test for the Bluebirds, especially since we have collected just a solitary point from our two outings this season including a disappointing defeat to Bristol City.

With no disrespect to Millwall and Crystal Palace, they will not provide the toughest opposition we will face this season. That said, they will be difficult to beat and will want to get one over on the Bluebirds - now a big scalp and we have to deal with the 'big spenders' tag.

There is no doubt Malky will go out to win both those games, but a return of 4 points from two trips to London would still represent a huge success. We know we have the ability to excel away from home, with the ability to add fresh faces and feed players like Bellamy, Noone and Smith who are incredibly dangerous on the break.

It is nowhere near make or break time, but now that the squad has settled somewhat - it is fair to say that this week will provide the best indicator of where we are. It would be criminal to get carried away by wins over a developing Wolves side, short on confidence and with a new manager - and over Warnock's injury hit Leeds Utd. there must be no complacency, and only a good performance tonight would mean taking anything from a Millwall side-likely to be wounded and pumped up after their thrashing on Saturday.

Ten points from 5 games is pretty decent, after this weeks two away trips - we will now much much more about Malky's rotation policy, our ability to win on the road, and of course, our own promotion hopes. A big week on the field for Cardiff City.
