Six Games Six Wins?

Six Games Six Wins?

Will Cardiff need to win all six of our remaining games to stay in the Premier League? It could well come down to that with Jordan Mutch of the opinion that's what we need to do.

Next up for Cardiff are Crystal Palace, who stunned Premier League challengers Chelsea with a win at Selhurst Park at the weekend, we'll finish again Chelsea who might need to beat us to win the title? These two, and the four in between, all need to be won says Mutch.

First and foremost though the next three are games that Mutch, quoted on BBC Sport, is looking for a good points return from.

'From now until the end of the season we need to look to get three points from every game,' said Mutch.

'From 20th spot to 16th or 15th everyone is going to be looking to do that, and that isn't necessarily going to happen for every team.

'If we can pick up points over the next three games, we give ourselves a massive chance and put pressure the teams around us.'

Our remaining games are.

5 April - Crystal Palace (h)
12 April - Southampton (a)
19 April - Stoke (h)
27 April - Sunderland (a)
3 May - Newcastle (a)
11 May - Chelsea (h)

Mutch played his part in the dramatic draw with another relegation rival West Bromwich Albion on Saturday, he thinks it could be a 'massive point' even if he knows we wanted, and could have done with, all three points really.

If Mutch can continue to create goals and score them too we have a chance, and that's his aim.

To have a chance of staying up we've got to beat Crystal Palace, Stoke and Sunderland haven't we? If we win those three we've given ourselves a chance going into the Newcastle and Chelsea games to finish off.

Southampton could be the one that sways it, should we beat Crystal Palace and then beat Southampton that would be two wins on the spin taking into the Stoke and Sunderland games, again needing to be won that if we did we could be looking at four wins in a row.

Are we likely to manage four successive wins though?
