Promotion confirmed Now for the title

City lead Hull by 7 points with three games to go. Surely it's a formality.

Hull, likely to be going up with Cardiff, entertain already relegated Bristol City on Friday evening and if they lose then City will be Champions without kicking a ball.

A win for Cardiff at Burnley will confirm it anyway.

It seems that City will be Champions sooner rather than later and hopefully in time to celebrate with a presentation on Saturday week at the final home game with Bolton.

No doubt the open top bus planned in 2008, 2010 and 2012 but never needed will get a run out in 2013.

On Tuesday April 16th Cardiff secured the point needed to go up and in front on the biggest crowd in the league that evening. The results were:
