Bolton. A Cardiff City graveyard

Last updated : 24 December 2017 By Michael Morris

Yesterday's win for Bolton at The Macron Stadium was with 12th league victory over Cardiff from the last 13 games in the north west.

Cardiff's 3 - 2 win two years ago the only blip on Bolton's superb record over the Bluebirds.

The defeat, while disappointing, shouldn't overshadow the fact that at the halfway point of the season Cardiff are in second place. Wolves (who beat Ipswich) have 54 points, Cardiff have 47 pts while Derby are now 3rd with 44 pts. The Rams just ahead of Bristol City on goal difference.

The loss was only City's 4th of the season.

Neil Warnock will have to get team ready for Boxing Day

But no time to dwell with three more games coming up this holiday season.

Over 20,000 are expected at CCS on Tuesday for the visit of Fulham before Friday night football when Preston come to the capital. The festive fixtures end with a trip to Q.P.R. on New Years Day.
