4 wins = Promotion. Can we do it?

We will find out on Saturday if yesterday's defeat has had a mental effect on the players. City entertain Colchester Utd at Ninian Park knowing only a win will do. With Crewe playing at home against Swindon it looks like City must win their game, Crewe are not expected to lose.

Bristol City go to Luton. The Hatters are now playing for pride, they cannot mathematically make a play off place. With Bristol only three points behind City we cannot afford to slip up. Ideally Crewe and Bristol will drop points but if it's City that make a cock up then I do not fancy the long and winding road to the final game of the season to celebrate Crewe's promotion.

Cardiff must match Crewe, that will mean winning this Saturday. We then watch Crewe go to Barnsley on Monday before we visist Ashton gate.

Then we face a huge weekend, Cardiff entertain already promoted Wigan, Crewe are at QPR. Rangers may need points to confirm their play off berth.

Lennie last night accused his players of "failing to take the Peterborough threat seriously". I hope he's hit it home hard that we do not take any of our remaining opponents lightly.

If we have to go to Crewe as a play off team while they bask in promotion we will be a broken team. Then the play offs would be a nightmare.

No more errors Cardiff City.
