Cardiff City recently managed to re-establish the 10 point advantage at the top of the table following the 1-0 win over Leeds United. As a result of this victory, the club have now managed to win the last five away encounters in the Championship. They will be able to establish a new record if the manager another victory against Huddersfield Town during the weekend. The manager Malky Mackay has said that he wants to beat the record set by the Cardiff team in the late 1940s of eight successive victories away from home. Another Cardiff team in the early 1990s managed to win seventh successive matches away from home.
Cardiff City have been on an extraordinary run of form in the last few weeks, which has seen them open a significant advantage in the table. However, there are still 17 matches left to play in the championship, and the manager Mackay has said that he has already warned the players about complacency. Cardiff go into the match against Huddersfield with great confidence especially considering the state of the opposition. Huddersfield have managed just one victory in the last 16 matches, while they are under the control of a caretaker manager. Mackay has credited the meticulous preparation to each match as the reason for success.
“We prepare in the same meticulous way for every match, home and away. This is now all about monotonous consistency and not being complacent. We have been consistent of late and have to maintain that momentum,” said Mackay ahead of the match with Huddersfield. Mackay was extremely delighted with the debut made by the new signing Fraizer Campbell in the match against Leeds United. The Sunderland striker was brought to the club for around £ 700,000, and he scored his first goal in the 1-0 win over Leeds.
