Cardiff v DERBY @ Ninian Park 28.10.06

Runner away leaders, though they lost at Norwich at the weekend, but they've won 5 drew 1 of their 6 home games, so it's obviously a big ask to come away with anything from this one.

Really hope we do, I'll be there, and it's a long way home if we lose.

He now faces a number of weeks out and the news is a blow for the Rams, who thought the 25-year-old Scot would be back in action much sooner.

Two scans last week showed no signs of ligament or bone damage but the injury was not responding to treatment as quickly as expected.

Malcolm (pictured left) has now seen a specialist and a piece of floating bone appears to be the cause of the trouble.

"It's a case of trying to move the bone with treatment or remove it with surgery," said manager Billy Davies. "We will know more in the next few days but Bob could be out for weeks."

Malcolm sat out Saturday's 1-0 home defeat by Birmingham City, the third game he has missed since being injured in training.

Another training ground injury ruled skipper Matt Oakley out of the Birmingham match. The 29-year-old picked up a slight knee injury on Friday.

"We don't think it's too serious and I would expect Matt to be available for Saturday's game against Cardiff City," said Davies.

Defender Dean Leacock should also be in the squad to face leaders Cardiff at Ninian Park.

He missed the Birmingham defeat on medical advice after suffering a bout of concussion during last Tuesday's victory over Queens Park Rangers.

"The doctor was concerned about throwing Dean back in so soon," said Davies.

"Dean did some jogging in training late last week but no heading."

Davies says striker Paul Peschisolido faces another three or four weeks out with his thigh injury.


Bad news about Malcolm, though with Seth returning to form it's not so bad, I hope Oakleys fit for saturday, he's been a bit of colour the last few games, but Bolder and Seth are a bit too much the same to play together for me.

We won 2-0 last time I went 2 seasons ago, and drew 0-0 last season, you must be thinking of someone else.

We always tend to do quite well against the so called better teams, 5-0 hammering by Reading aside I'm quite confident we can get something.

This game in some ways reminds of the time when we went to Wigan on Boxing day 2 seasons ago... They were absolutly flying at Christmas, and we were just about on the fringes of the playoffs..

I would have thought that at least 90% of Derby fans would have admitted at the time, that we probably would have got ripped apart up there.. but the fact is we won 2-1 up there, and played some really good football!!!!, I always remember Ross Fletcher going mental when Tommy Smith scored the 2nd goal

So who knows if we are in for a repeat scoreline on saturday!!!

One of the best games I ever went to that,, I predicted 2-1 win before hand as well in the concourse, Matt Payne even put his money on it, too this day I don't know why I didn't put a few quid on it myself

I think we could see Stead back on the bench, and Lupoli starting in the wide forward role, he's been quite succesful there in away games, it's not the same as the more midfield role he has in home games, he also tends to get more freedom, in the position he's playing and from the opposition defence.

I don't see Davies changing to the more attacking 4-4-2, and maybe bringing in Barnes and dropping Bolder for the team who are top...

Derby: Bob Malcolm and Paul Peschisolido remain on the sidelines with ankle and thigh injuries respectively.

However, the news should be more positive about Dean Leacock and team skipper Matt Oakley.

Leacock (head) and Oakley (knee) both missed the game against Birmingham City last weekend but are expected to be fit for the trip to South Wales.

Darren Moore sits out the game with a one-match suspension after picking up his fifth booking of the season.

Cardiff: Striker Michael Chopra is available again after sitting out the Bluebirds' 1-0 defeat at Norwich City with a one-game suspension.

Chopra has seven goals in 12 games and has been a revelation since his summer move from Newcastle United.

Also pushing for a return is defender Kevin McNaughton, who came through an hour of a reserve-team game in the week and should be available if he suffers no reaction to his hamstring problem

THE REFEREE

Andre Marriner is another who already this season has experienced games across the board, from the Premiership to League 2.

The West Midlands official last took charge of Derby for the first leg of the 2004/05 play-off semi-final away at Preston North End.

In his 11 games this season he has issued 40 yellow cards but not yet sent anyone off.

So Chopra wasn't playing last week, could explain why they lost, I don't understand why we didn't go for him in the summer, oh well. I'm worried about our defence being able to cope with him though, Johnson and hopefully Leacock will have to play out of their skins to keep him quiet.

Interesting too see how there referees are being spread out across the divisions this season, someone obviously realised the ones that we're supposed to be the best ones are f**king useless

I think Cardiff will have a good season this season, and will beat us 2-0 on saturday, Chopra will probably score.

Good too see the optimism

Quite a few people saying we will lose...though that's usually when we win...so keep saying it

I see some goals in this, for a prediction, I say 3-2 Cardiff, if we could hold out for a draw it would be a good result.

Up bright and early this morning, looking forward to it, if only for a chance too stand on the terrace, it'll be a shame when that's gone, there's not that many left...untill you start going down the leagues...and we don't want to do that

No doubt we've got a tough game, but we have the ability too score goals past anyone, it's still keeping them out at the other end that worries me, that's why I see goals today, I just hope we can at least match Cardiff in that department.

COOOOOOOOOMEEEE ONNNNNN DEEERRBBBYYY!!!!

scoreless at the half, can't say that I am not happy with the result so far but I am expecting the worse

2:2 draw, good result especially because Barnes scored the equalizer in the 90th minute

2-2 it finishes, Barnes with a late equalizer. 2 pts. dropped for Cardiff.
