The full statement can be found here on the official website.

In it David Temme warns that a lot of spin will be put on the events leading up to the play off semi finals.

The details start with how the arrangements for the fixtures between Cardiff and Bristol, ticket numbers, selling dates, fixture dates etc were all agreed.

Then out of the blue came the news that Bristol had made arrangements to beam Saturdays game back to Ashton Gate without the permission of ITV or even Cardiff City.

Bristol City have sold tickets for the beamback but it's unsure now if it will be allowed to happen.

There is also no love lost between Cardiff City and the Bristol City Chief Exec Colin Sextone.

All in all a very interesting, if complicated read.
