**Match Day Thread - Ipswich v Bluebirds**

on Sat Dec 10, 2016 7:52 pm
Some match facts, courtesy of the BBC......

Ipswich failed to score in both league meetings with Cardiff last season (D1 L1), after failing to score in just two of their 24 against them previously.

After winning both of their first two league visits to Portman Road (in 1938 and 1946), Cardiff have won just two of their subsequent 20 trips to face Ipswich in league competition (D7 L11).

The Tractor Boys have failed to score in eight of their last 12 league matches (W3 D4 L5).

Cardiff have won just twice on the road in 14 league matches (D4 L8).

Ipswich have lost two of their last 12 Championship matches at Portman Road (W5 D5).

The clean sheet Cardiff kept in their 0-0 draw with Brighton was their first shutout in 18 league matches.


On the face of it, there may not be many goals in this one...... 0 - 0 for sure ....maybe...

Good point in the end. Will be interesting to hear what happened with Bamba and how Warnock handles things.

Think the mood is still optimistic, despite a lack of momentum, but that will change if we fail to beat Wolves in midweek.
