Terriers Point Massive As Rivals Falter

Terriers Point Massive As Rivals Falter

Cardiff City secured a creditable draw away at Huddersfield Town but it was a point that looked extremely valuable come the end of the weekend fixtures with our cause aided hugely by some unexpected and helpful results.

The good news began on Friday night when Crytsal Palace, who looked appalling until Holloway touchline rocket sorted them out, managed to claw back 2 goals and record a 2-2 draw with Watford. Both are in contention and sharing the points was a good end for City.

The really big results came on Saturday however and it was lowly Peterborough who once again shocked a top Championship side - this time beating Leicester City 2-1. The Posh were the first to beat us at home this season, but did us a huge favour yesterday. P'boro came from behind and a late McCann goal rocked the Foxes.

The late kick-off saw Brighton beat Hull City 1-0 courtesy of a late Vicente free-kick. Brighton are back in contention for a play-off place but crucially for Cardiff City they kept The Tigers on 53 points level with Leicester and Watford - now a full 11 points behind us.

Middlesbrough also continued to shock, this time getting beaten 3-2 by Barnsley to follow-up a 4-0 thumping at Ipswich Town. Despite their squad strength on paper, Boro seem unlikely to mount a serious challenge for automatic promotion. Mowbray's men are now 17 points behind Cardiff City and will be looking behind them rather than up the table at the moment.

Taking our own result aside, defeats for Leicester (53 points) and Hull City (53) - our two closest challengers was superb. They are joined by Watford (53) and closely followed by Palace (52) but with Cardiff sitting pretty on 64 - promotion now seems ours to lose, rather than our rivals to gain.

Vital Pre-Match - Charlton Athletic v Cardiff

Cardiff look to close the gap on the play-off places. Wins against Wolves and Huddersfield have kept this on but draws against Rotherham and MK Dons could prove costly.
