The Cardiff city captain Mark Hudson has said that he will not be changing his game as a result of being extremely close to suspension following the activation of cards so far this campaign. Hudson has already received for yellow cards this season. Normally, receiving five yellow cards through the season will result in a suspension. Due to the fact that Cardiff city are starting to find form at just the right stage in the season, it has been rumoured that the manager will be asking Hudson to maintain his discipline in order to have him for the big matches.

The captain of the club, though, has rejected the idea of limiting himself in order to not pick another yellow card. Cardiff city managed a very impressive 4-0 win over Burnley during the weekend. After the match, the captain said that his style of play means that it will be very difficult for him to pull out of challenges. Hence, there is always the risk of getting booked for a rash challenge. It Cardiff city are currently top of the Championship table with 28 points on the board. The lead Leicester City, who are their closest challengers, by three points having played 13 matches apiece.

“If the fifth booking comes then we have to deal with that, but it’s no good working too hard to avoid it. We have played well at home and there was some top-quality flowing football against Burnley. It was an all-round team display with everybody playing their part. Kim came into the team, was calm in possession and kept things moving. He is learning English well and showed he was ready for what was an outstanding debut,” said Hudson after the Burnley match. Cardiff will be playing against the recently relegated club Bolton Wanderers next weekend.



Cardiff City captain Mark Hudson has said that the club should be looking at the possibility of retaining all the big names, despite missing out on the play-off final. Cardiff have suffered a number of disappointments in this stage of the competition. They were defeated by Reading a few seasons back prior to getting into the finals, while they were beaten by Blackpool 3-2 in 2010. They once again suffered heartbreak at the play-off stage after exiting following a 5-0 aggregate loss to favourites West Ham. Cardiff lost the first leg encounter 2-0, but were even poor in the second leg at Upton Park.

However, Hudson has said that the club should be looking at the possibility of retaining some of the key players like Peter Whittingham, who has been linked with a move away from the club should they miss out on the chance to be promoted to the Premier league. Peter Whittingham was recently named in the Championship team of the year by the PFA, which clearly shows his importance to the team. However, with Cardiff unable to get promotion to the Premier league after many attempts, this looks finally to be the last straw for Peter Whittingham.

“You want to keep your quality players and Pete over the season has been fantastic again. I couldn’t rave about him enough, he always works hard and he never misses a game. If you look at how many games he’s played this season he’s always been there, trying his best, working as hard as he can for the cause. You do need to keep hold of those sort of players, but we’ll see, we’re trying to keep everyone together,” said captain Hudson. Hudson also said that he believes the club can return strong next season just as they have did in previous years.
