Cardiff VS Derby match analysis

Cardiff City want to go to Premier League already for a long time. Now, they are among teams which will fight against each other in play-offs, but Cardiff still have a chance to win the second place and catch Premier League directly. They are four points beneath Norwich that have relative easy task today, against Scunthorpe. According to set odds we could say that Cardiff have also easy task, but I don't think so. Today, Dave Jones can't count on on-loan goalkeeper Stephen Bywater because he can't play against his parent club, Derby. Also, important centre-back Mark Hudson have taken a injury against Millwall and he will be absent at least next four games. Jones will have to make a lot of shifts in the defensive line, in order to fit the new on-loan player Jlloyd Samuel. Cardiff have a lot of players on-loan from other clubs, five of them are in a combination for the team. On the other hand, Derby County are nine points above relegation zone, but they are not still safe and need every possible point in next games. Today, there are good news for them because forward Tomasz Cywka could play after a month out with a injury. Also, defender Russell Anderson is back from injury and Brad Jones, on-loan from Liverpool, will have his debut today. Derby lost at home this season against Cardiff, 1:2, and in previous two games in Cardiff they were demolished, 1:6 and 1:4. Today, they can use problems of their host and return them by win one point. GL.
