Cardiff could be on a wobble, says Leicester City's Wes Morgan


Cardiff City are sure to be fired-up after last week's shock home defeat to Peterborough United when they travel to the King Power Stadium on Saturday, said City skipper Wes Morgan.

Malky Mackay's men had possessed the only 100 per cent home record until struggling Posh claimed victory last week.

Instead of fearing a Bluebirds backlash however, Morgan said the defeat could work in City's favour.

In fact, Morgan said City were looking to demonstrate their own promotion credentials with victory over the Championship leaders, especially after last week's defeat at Millwall.

"I don't think that result will make it any tougher for us because I am sure their mentality is the same every week, to try and win that game," he said.

"It will be a setback for them and it could be the start of a wobble for them, so it could even work in our favour.

"They could go on a dodgy run. We want to get back to winning ways ourselves and they are our next opponents.

"They are the form team at the moment and everyone is looking at them because they are top of the pile. It is a good opportunity for us to show what we are capable of and what we can do.

"I wasn't shocked at their result last week. I am never shocked by results in this league.

"It was an unusual result but I am sure they will want to bounce back. But so will we.

"We have home advantage, which is good for us but, in this league, you can't call any result."

Morgan said City should be satisfied with the progress they have made so far this season as they head into the crucial festive fixture list.

"I think it has been a very good first half to the season," he said.

"It hasn't been perfect because we are not top of the table, but we are in a very good position.

"Sometimes performances don't get the right result but, as long as the performances are there, I am sure the right result will come more often than not.
