Hello. If it is acceptable to write off home games against Arsenal and Manchester City as free hits, then this is the kind of fixture that Cardiff City have to circle in red ink in the calendar. Given the financial gulf between the sides, there really is no point dwelling on last week’s 5-0 defeat to City. Yet if Cardiff are going to stay in the Premier League, then they really need to take three points when teams like Burnley pay them a visit.
No offence to Burnley, who proved last season that they are not to be taken lightly. Yet survival tends to hinge on the strength of a side’s home form and Cardiff have already failed to beat Newcastle at the Cardiff City Stadium. After picking up two points from their first six games, scoring three goals in the process, Neil Warnock’s scrappers desperately need to pick up their first league win here.
