The final countdown

08 Apr 2013 01:19:50

The final countdown

City require eight points for promotion and eleven for the title.

Those targets are based on both Hull and Watford winning all their games.

So for example Cardiff will be promoted whatever happens if they win three of their remaining six games. But that could be reduced to winning just two games if Watford draw or lose just one of their matches,

Cardiff now have three home games in a week starting with Barnsley tomorrow. Promotion to the top flight is tantalisingly close.

The remaining fixtures for the top three are:
