Dean Ryan insists there is plenty of untapped potential at the Dragons but has warned they won’t move forward without increased investment.

Neil Harris Turns Up The Volume . . . And Vows Bluebirds Can Make Some Noise At Leeds United

Neil Harris has promised Cardiff City fans his players can make amends for their first defeat under his management by shocking Leeds United on Saturday. The Bluebirds will be huge 9-1 outsiders at Elland Road after succumbing to a tame 2-1 loss at Brentford on Wednesday night. Goals from Bryan Mbeumo and Ollie Watkins had given Brentford a deserved lead. Cardiff launched a fightback when Marlon Pack's pile-driver made it 2-1 on the hour, but they could not find an equaliser.

Former Scarlet Stephen Leonard Leads Light Blues . . . Then Back To The Day Job Seeking Cure For Cancer

Stephen Leonard will follow in some illustrious Welsh footsteps when the Cambridge skipper leads out the Light Blues in the 138th Varsity Match at Twickenham today (Thurs). The former Llandovery College pupil has graduated into a back row regular at Grange Road and will win his third Blue at the home of English rugby, captaining a side that boasts 99 caps in the second row split between former Aussie James Horwill and Springbok giant Flip van der Merwe.

The Swans manager gave both barrels to the experienced 44-year-old official who sent off a player from either side as the Swans’ winless run was extended to six matches. As well as the two controversial dismissals, Cooper also felt Simpson had ignored a Swansea penalty claim for handball and got another call wrong when striker Sam Surridge was pushed in the penalty area.
