City still in play off hunt after Wolves lose

Last updated : 15 April 2008 By Michael Morris
Cardiff City's play off ambitions are still intact after Wolves lost at home to West Brom.

The top half of the league table (below) shows City can still have a decent shot at 6th place. 4 wins from 4 games would be enough if Palace and Ipswich drop points. City might get away with one draw but realistically must win at least three of the remaining matches to have a real chance.

Cardiff's remaining fixtures are Scunthorpe (A) - 19th April, Wolves (A) - 22nd April, Burnley (A) - 26th April and Barnsley (H) - 4th May.

The fixture at Wolves is crucial but Wolves, Palace and Ipswich all face tough matches before the season is over.

In the other game on Tuesday night Hull City beat Barnsley to go into 2nd place behind West Brom. Fair play to Hull. Total unexpected but they are in with a decent shout of promotion. Good luck to them.
