    Cardiff v Swansea

    The local derby won’t be the same without the fans today but the players will know what’s at stake, with fans pride and bragging rights on the line.
    Both sides are in form but it will count for nothing, the winning team will be the one best able to hold their nerve and play their normal game.
    Cardiff have won their last four games conceding only one goal, Swansea have the tightest defence in the division and are 4 points better off.
    Swansea have the silky skills of leading scorer Andre Ayew, Cardiff have the aerial prowess of 6’5” giant forward Kieffer Moore.
    Swansea will make a late decision on whether injured defenders Bennett and Guehi can play.
    Cardiff’s expensive loanee, Liverpool midfielder Harry Wilson, is doubtful with an arm injury.
    A tight game is on the cards and a draw or a win by the odd goal from either side is the predictable outcome.

    HT 0-1 cross from Bidwell, header down from Roberts, Lowe side foots in. Swans the better team so far.
    Bennett and Guehi on harsh yellow cards, they have to be careful second half.

    Good away win yesterday and selection and tactics for the game were spot on.
    We have 33 points from 18 games, 3 points more than last season from the same number of games.
    Unfortunately our form took a dip after that before recovering at the end to reach the play offs.
    It’s all about consistency and this time with a better squad depth we can hopefully go one better this time.
    It will be hard because the recently PL relegated teams, Norwich, Bournemouth and Watford have kept most of their players so their squads are very strong and of PL quality.
