Derby day: Bluebirds v Jacks

It's a massive, massive day tomorrow if you're a South Wales football fan (which I am of course, along with Mini-Stats).

City take on Swansea in the league tomorrow in a match neither team can really afford to lose, and not just because of their great rivalry. City lie in 6th spot with a game or more in hand over those above them, and whilst a play off place is surely the aim, there is still a slight chance of second spot and automatic promotion, but only if they win nearly every remaining game and other sides slip up, whilst the Jacks are 9th and harbour hopes of sneaking into the play-off places themselves.

The powers that be have decided this'll be an 11am kick off - presumably to avoid drinking before the match, although rumour has it that some pubs will be opening early for the occasion.

It'll mean an early start for us that's for sure. We only live about 15 mins away from the ground, but generally like to be there at least an hour, often more, before kick off to savour the atmosphere, and there will certainly be an atmosphere tomorrow, so it'll mean leaving soon after 9am for a home game!!!

Mike Dean a Premiership ref is supposed to be officiating, and it'll certainly need a calm head.

Here's hoping for a City win.

Up the Bluebirds!!!
