Cardiff – Norwich 01.02.2014
Cardiff are now bottom of the table but at least its a real scrap down there with just 6 points between them and rivals
Swansea who are 11th. Plenty of teams in trouble and enough time to put it right and get of it but having only taken 1 point in the last 7 games its pretty clear this is a massive match. A wins needed and having done some nice business in the window Ole could use all 3 new signings against Norwich, Fabio, Jones and Zaha.
Despite struggling in the league there has been a couple of fine cup wins at Bolton and Newcastle. 2 goals scored at City too not a bad performance last week at all. Im sure the boss would swap a cup run for staying up though course he would.
Match: Cardiff – Norwich 16.00h
League: England Premier League
Our prediction: Home Win Odds: 2.15
Norwich are a side i really dont enjoy watching at all and expect to see in the championship next season. Boring, dull, negative, i think the have one or two decent attacking options but it always seems to be up to Hooper to grab goals. If he gets injured they will go down. Against Newcastle in midweek the attack offered very little, Norwich have scored just 4 goals in the last 8 games and have taken some real doings on the road.
Even the 2 away wins were in very scrappy games when Norwich were a little lucky at Stoke and WBA.
Will be a tight game and no doubt low scoring but i just fancy Cardiff backed by their terrific support to sneak a result here. Their signings look pretty good and while their form is poor the performances havent been. I think Cardiff can get a vital win here.
