    Mate I really hope you're right with that one   
    It's a really big game for us now. We've got a run of games against teams around us/bottom half teams so got to pick up a few wins. We didn't really deserve to lose to Middlesbrough, it was petering out into a draw and then Middlesbrough snook it late on. Fair play to them though, their bench was strong (Assombalonga, Bolasie, Mendez-Liang, Watmore, Saville). 
    The worrying thing for us was no shots on target against Middlesbrough. Judging by Rooney's 6 changes in midweek and his interview in the last few days, he's targeting this game. 
    Our motivation is that talks are at an advanced stage about us returning to the Ricoh Arena next season so the players will want Championship Football for themselves and the fans potentially in front of a big crowd next season.

    Totally agree with that treble. Although Derby have been a bit more defensively solid under Rooney, Cardiff are on great form. Definitely fancy your lads to beat Luton at home and also Watford to beat Wycombe. 
     
    @StevieDay1983 what were Middlesbrough like on Saturday? We've got them tomorrow night at home. If i was betting on it then it would be a low scoring game for me. Definitely under 2.5 goals. We've had quite a few 0-0's at St Andrews this season. 9 out of our last 11 games at St Andrews have gone under 2.5.

    Fingers crossed mate, we could do with sneaking an unexpected win in one of our next 3 tough fixtures (Norwich, Brentford, Swansea). Got to bounce back from the Cardiff game and show some real fight. 
    Bad news for us is that our LB/LWB Sam McCallum is ineligible to play against his parent club Norwich, so somebody will be playing out of position tomorrow night, most probably Jordan Shipley covering at LWB. Robins said he ideally wants to revert back to 2 up front but the lack of fit strikers has hindered this. With Tyler Walker getting some minutes on Saturday he might be thrown straight back in. We'll still be missing key players in Godden, Dabo and Liam Kelly. 
    It will be a really hard task keeping Norwich quiet with the quality they have up the top end of the pitch (Pukki, Cantwell, Buendia).

    Well done on the win mate.  Dreadful performance from us, Mark Robins said it's the worst performance of the season with no fight. But credit to Cardiff for taking full advantage. Kieffer Moore took his first goal well, nice turn inside. A couple of defensive mistakes for the 2nd goal. Fell asleep and didn't stop the quick free kick for the 3rd, albeit a nice finish by Josh Murphy. The only positives for us today were Tyler Walker got a good half hour under his belt and Birmingham below us lost at home. Cardiff definitely deserved the win and a very good start under Mick McCarthy.

    Hopefully mate, getting quite tight down the bottom though. Yeah, 2 of our best halves of football this season and we ended up with 0 points!  Think a draw was probably the fair result last week. You were much the better team in the first half and then we dominated second half.

    Haha!  Hopefully we can deal with Kieffer Moore again, we usually defend well against the big aggressive players (Moore, Akinfenwa, Deeney, etc). I'd imagine Ostigard will be in the middle of the 3 centre backs and up against Kieffer Moore. He coped really well with Troy Deeney on Saturday. That's right there a good improvement of form under Mick McCarthy. It will definitely be an interesting game. May the best team win

    One thing I can guarantee is that you will win the midfield battle!  I think that's why we avoid that part of the pitch! Yeah, I can see a tightly fought game too. I did watch it. We are playing decent at the moment. Players got their tails up again thanks to Big Mick. Rotherham are now pushovers and nearly grabbed a point. I'm keen to see how our game plays out.

    Coventry played like a play off team in both 2nd halves against us, should move up the table as their players come back.

    Literally can't call any of our games mate. It's such a good league in the sense almost anybody can beat anybody. We were plodding along nicely till our loss against Forest and teams below us picking up good wins (e.g. Sheff Weds doing the double over Bournemouth, Rotherham with some good wins too, etc). But we got a decent draw with Watford at the weekend, although we were the better side on the day. We are really struggling with injuries at the moment and missed big players for large parts of the season who were mostly the spine of our League 1 title winning team (Marosi, Rose, Dabo, Kelly, Godden, Walker to name a few). But having said that we do play on the front foot and play some nice football. We've got quality in centre midfield and hopefully Matty James and Gus Hamer can win the midfield battle with O'Hare bombing forward as the more attacking midfielder. Our defence has tightened up since around November time and we can be difficult to beat. 
    I'd predict a tight affair like our first meeting this season, maybe a 0-0, 1-1 or a 1-0 either way. Under 2.5 goals.  
    Good win for your boys tonight. Did you watch it?  Play well?

    Haha too right mate. Yeah Joao's last touch was a heavy one which allowed Marosi to come out and save. Very good win and we played a lot better than Tuesday which was pleasing. Robins changed formation slightly and put 2 up top which worked really well. Like you say we've got to build on it now. Hopefully our young side will keep gaining experience and improving.

    I fear the worse tonight mate. Reading on fire at the minute and our form has been poor. October was always going to be a rough month for us with a run of tough games against the likes of Brentford, Bournemouth, etc and now top of the league Reading tonight. We should have probably beat Swansea last Tuesday and missed 2 sitters in the last few minutes. Blackburn overpowered us big time on Saturday as soon as we went down to 10 men after 15 mins. We defended well at Middlesbrough on Tuesday until a simple ball down the middle the 83rd minute! But didn't create much. 
    We are starting to get players back now and i'd imagine Dabo, Rose and Kelly will all start tonight and O'Hare will be brought back into the starting line up. 
    Can't argue at all with your preview and reasoning  ..... but I hope you're wrong 😃
