Five of Cardiff's next six games are away from home. Starting at Watford this Monday (Boxing Day) City then go to Nottingham Forest on New Years Eve before the lone home game with Reading on Bank Holiday Monday, January 2nd.
Then come the cup games. Away at West Brom on Jan 7th, away at Crystal Palace on Jan 10th before a league game away at Doncaster on January 14th.
It's a testing time for the team and an expensive time for the fans. Fair play to those who manage to make it to the matches.
City are expected to have over 1500 fans at Vicarage Rd on Monday but understandably the figures are lower for Forest on Saturday with people having plans for parties and family events on New Years Eve.
