Bristol City, Cardiff & Burton (h)

After the midweek trip to Leicester in the cup, we have 3 home games in a row, against teams we'd expect to beat. Of course it doesn't always work out that way but if we want that 6th place I think we really need 9 points from these 3 games.

Unbeaten at home since McClaren came back, so 9 points isn't too much to expect, won't be easy though.

Home form is definitely what we've built our success on, we need to keep it going.

Carson, Baird, Pearce, Olsson, Ince and Bent all tested last night, expect them to all come back in. Not sure if the injury news on Hughes and Bryson yet.

Hughes and Bryson expected to be in the squad which is good news.

Team news

Carson

Baird
Keogh
Pearce
Olsson

Bryson
Johnson
Hughes

Ince
Bent
Camara

Mitchell, Shackell, Russell, Anya, de Sart, Butterfield, Nugent

Arguably full strength team (not including Thorne & Forsyth) no place on the bench for Christie & Lowe who probably need the rest and Blackman, but also Vydra who really doesn't seem to be in macs plans.

Been awful so far, 2-0 down could have been 4. Butterfield & Anya on for Bryson & Johnson

3-3

2 for Bent and 1 for Ince. If we had shown the intensity and fight in the first half it would be a comfortable win. We've got to stop starting games strolling about expecting to have it all our own way.

Cardiff can't be taken lightly and I'm sure they won't be. I expect McClaren to get a reaction from the players to his words about yesterday's first-half doze.

F****t saved by goal difference.

It was a strange game, the flatness was in the crowd as well before kick off.

Parents depressed by the thought of the impending school half-term, perhaps.

Yeah, they're a typical warnock team. Will have to be up for the fight from the start on Tuesday.

Some team selections to think about for McClaren. Anya, Butterfield and Nugent all made an impact after coming on, De Sart must be considered too.

What are the words to the Abdoul Camara song? I can't quite make it out.

Anything less than 3 points tonight is a disaster.

1-0 De Sart

Scoring rather than conceding from a corner for a change
