Mutch More Confident
Cardiff has to beat Fulham to have any realistic chance of staying in the Premier League. That win on Saturday doesn't mean that we'll automatically achieve that but we've give ourselves a chance.
Jordon Mutch has been quoted on BBC Sport as saying that confidence is high we can do this, in fact it's always been high, but the huge win over relegation rivals Fulham has sent it even higher.
OGS has said we need another four wins but Mutch isn't ruling out winning more than that, not that he's not getting 'too excited' though and has adopted that old footballing cliché of 'taking it one game at a time.'
'Who's to say we can't win six or seven of those nine games?
'The confidence we've got at the minute.
'We've always had that belief. Two to three weeks ago we always knew we could get out of it.
'This is just one result so let's not get too excited. I think we've just got to take it one game at a time.'
If four wins will do it then, and maybe I'm getting carried away myself, when I look at the fixture list I now feel we can get them but I'm not sure that four would be enough and if we needed more then 'on paper' we might struggle?
First and foremost we take on Everton though at the weekend.
In many ways we do need to take the 'game at a time' approach that Mutch suggested and he's already looking at that game at Goodison Park as one that he feels we can win and we'll go there looking to get all three points.
'I think they are better this season under Martinez. I think they play a lot better football. Hopefully we can combat that and get something out of the game.
'We've got some good players in the squad so they are not short of confidence as it is but winning creates a good habit so hopefully we can take that into next weekend.
'We'll go there and look to get three points.'
If we can get a point against Everton that's a good point.
The only problem is with Liverpool coming up in the Premier League after the game with their Merseyside rivals three points against Everton would give us a little more leeway as we'll not get anything at the Cardiff City Stadium from Liverpool, will we?
