Wonder Wingers Key To Cardiff vs Blackpool Clash

Cardiff City and Blackpool must be two of the more attacking teams currently in the Championship with both sides packed with quality talent and a tendency to push on. Hopefully I've not put the curse on for a guaranteed 0-0 draw tomorrow...

While both starting XIs will have proven and experienced strikers with the likes of Helguson, Taylor-Fletcher, Kevin Phillips etc - it's the frightening class of the wing options that really excites ahead of this game.

Blackpool are likely to line up with Tom Ince on the left, and former Bluebirds target Matt Phillips on the right. Both are destined to play in the Premiership, with suitors for both men monitoring their progress ahead of making bids in January or in preparation for next season.

Ince has made 7 appearances in the Championship this season, scoring a mightily impressive 6 goals including a brace in a 6-0 thrashing of Ipswich Town. 21 year old Phillips does not pose the same goal threat (scoring once this season) but he made his mark against City last season and has bags of pace. He will certainly pose a threat and cause real problems for Andrew Taylor.

Cardiff City also have an abundance of talent to play on our flanks, though the actual personnel who will take the field is far from certain. In Craig Bellamy, we have most likely the best player outside the Premiership. Although yet to fully fire this term, Bellamy possesses the raw pace, and experienced head to fire City to promotion. He is likely to play, but Mackay is mindful of Bellamy's knee condition so he could yet be rested.

Craig Noone has been a revelation since joining from Brighton. He has all the tricks and is a real handful for any defender. Noone was unlucky to be dropped for the 3-2 reversal against Palace. Kim Bo Kyung is vying for a start with the highly rated South Korean midfielder possessing creativity, flair and a deft touch.

Craig Conway will hope to play a part having excelled for the development squad in midweek, but it looks like a bench spot at best for 'the Bull'

It seems likely that both team will cause problems with attacking line-ups and intention to attack. Whoever lines up on the flanks will be crucial to both teams tactics...
