Cardiff City Player-of-the-Month For January

Cardiff City Player-of-the-Month For January

January was another good month for Cardiff City with City keeping up the pressure on our rivals and maintaining a healthy lead at the top of the Championship. However, it is extremely difficult to pick a stand-out player with plenty of squad rotation going on and only 3 (league) games in the whole of January.

City took 7 points from 9, a very impressive tally and conceded just the one goal during that period. Andrew Taylow is looking a far better defender than at other times in his 18 month Bluebirds career and clearly enjoys playing with the hardworking Craig Conway to offer further protection.

However, the mose influential player during January for Vital Cardiff City has been goalkeeper David Marshall. Marsh is an ever present in the league, and has often been largely redundant at times this campaign. However, he is always ready when called upon and has continued to make superb saves at important times. We have been good, but not that good and there have been plenty of occasions when Marshall has come to our rescue.

It's easy to take the Scotsman for granted, but his understanding with his defence is crucial and he remains a top class shotstopper. Marshall's weakness has often been under the high ball, but City have adapted as a unit and with the dominant Hudson/Turner partnerhsip ahead of him - Marshall has been well protected and flourished.

If we continue to keep clean sheets with such regularity - there's no doubt we will be promoted. There is such a long way to go, but with Marshall in good form - we stand a very good chance. Long may the miserly defensive record last.
