Nothing changes for Cardiff who must continue to win their games to get promoted. Playing catch up City must win on Saturday against QPR to reclaim 2nd spot.
The pressure has moved though onto Cardiff's shoulders after Norwich hammered and humbled their local rivals with a five goal salvo at Portman Rd.
Maybe Leeds will offer some small comfort by stalling Reading's charge.
Saturday's Hign Noon (+45) clash with Q.P.R. is one of the biggest League games in Cardiff for a long time. If Rangers win they get promoted, if Cardiff win they reclaim 2nd place.
Cardiff really cannot afford to come away with anything other than three points as Norwich have an easier looking three game finish.
The race for the Premier League intensifies.
