I can remember Blackpool coming to Cardiff at the back end of last season in a similar state to Bolton and we were awful against them.

As bad as they are at the moment, Bolton are one of our bogey teams. Nevertheless, if we don't beat them convincingly today, then we certainly don't deserve to believe that we should ever have been in play-off contention.

City ought to win, but maybe only 1 - 0, although I would love to see Zohore score a hat trick on debut, if only to show up Slade for the tactical and selection inept that he is

Derby v Sheff Wed on Sky at lunchtime. Derby not a lot to play for, as it looks like they will be playing Hull, come what may, in the play-offs. I fancy Wednesday to get a draw at least.

Trotters 2-1

Bolton not won away from home in over a year - at Cardiff!

As you say, we tend to struggle in these games - as the stats prove - so I'm not expecting a lot. Should Wednesday lose at Derby (currently 0-0) then that should give the players some added incentive.

Zohore in for Immers who isn't on the bench. Harris also on the bench although we have Pilks, Noone, and Whitts playing with Lawrence and Ameobi also in the squad. How many wingers does he need? Healey would be a better option.

According to WO, Immers is ill, so the Zohore change is one forced on Slade.........probably the only way it would have happened. Funny how Harris has appeared again. Perhaps Rusty read our thread and remembered that he was in the squad.........

Awful performance according to sources. 77% possession but 0% cutting edge. So frustrating! The playoffs were really not that far away from our grasp yet we're unable to gain any kind of consistency or quality.

Pretty awful listening. Clueless in possession and Peltier having a mare.

All sould be okay now, as Ameobi on at halftime for Ralls

The correct result in the end but still have it all to do at Wednesday and then still relying on other results.

The chips don't often fall Cardiff's way that late in a match, but it makes next week's game more interesting for sure.

Not seen anything of the game, other than this thread, but I'll take that result.

So often been us in Wednesday's position at this stage of the season - and we all remember how that panned out!

That said, I'd bet all I have on Wednesday getting the draw they need next week.
