Neil Harris has shared that his Cardiff City side will be ready to ‘have a go’ at Leeds United once the Championship season resumes in less than three weeks.
The former-Millwall boss has reminded his current squad how well they were playing before the enforced break and opened up on the potential of having a fully-fit squad to face the Whites.
Harris will also, no doubt, bring up the reverse fixture in which Leeds somehow threw away a three-goal lead to draw 3-3 at Elland Road.
The Cardiff boss was certain on one thing, and that is that his squad will be ready to throw everything at Leeds once the season kicks off again.
“I reminded them of just how well we had played in the week leading up to the lockdown, some good results we’d had and the fact we could have, pretty much, a fully-fit squad when we get round to maybe facing Leeds United in a couple of weeks,” he told Wales Online.
“With nine games to go, let’s just have a go. Let’s just have a right go.”
It does seem strange that Harris believes his squad were in a good run of form before the lockdown though. The Bluebirds did win their last game at Barnsley, but that was their only victory in their last five outings – not exactly great.
Compare that to Leeds, who won their last five outings all with clean-sheets, and Harris may want to rethink his strategy going into this one.
If Cardiff go all out at Marcelo Bielsa’s side, just as they did in the first half of the reverse fixture, they will get picked off. Harris would be smarter to stay resolute in defence and trouble the Leeds defence in the air once again.
Nothing is guaranteed, but it could play well into Leeds’ hands if the Welsh side comes out all guns blazing at the Cardiff City Stadium. It will certainly make for an explosive game.
