Rhian Brewster And Swansea’s Young Brigade Are Leading The Charge, Says Steve Cooper
Steve Cooper has backed Rhian Brewster to remain the man for the big occasion after he started the comeback that saw his side move to within collar-breathing distance of play-off rivals Cardiff City. On-loan Liverpool forward Brewster scored his eighth goal in 16 games since joining on loan from Liverpool in January as the Swans beat Birmingham City 3-1 at St Andrew's. It meant back-to-back victories for Cooper’s side for the first time since December as they moved to within a point of sixth-placed Cardiff with four games remaining. The teams now have identical goal difference.

FAW Face Cymru Premier Chaos As The New Saints Wait For Legal Remedy

The Cymru Premier could be thrown into chaos today if The New Saints are successful in challenging the Football Association of Wales over their method of ending the season. The FAW used an unweighted points-per-game method to determine final placings when they opted to end the campaign early back in May due to the coronavirus pandemic. That decision – which handed Connah’s Quay Nomads the title – is being challenged by The New Saints in the High Court. It’s expected that the judgement of the court will be delivered remotely today.

Neil Harris Insists ‘No Regrets’ As Cardiff City Boss Admits Other Teams Are Better If Ble
Neil Harris insists there will be no lengthy inquests into Cardiff City’s first defeat since lockdown – just a determination to recover their ground quickly in the race for the Championship play-offs. The Bluebirds’ surprise 3-2 surrender at home to Blackburn Rovers on Tuesday night – after they led 1-0 and 2-1 – has opened the door to both Derby County and Swansea City in the fight for sixth place. But Harris is refusing to give it much of a backward glance after believing Adam Armstrong’s spectacular 45-yard winner was worthy of settling any game.

Premier League Veterans Can Give Us The Edge, Says Cardiff City’s Neil Harris
Neil Harris insists worldly-wise wisdom can guide Cardiff City past Blackburn Rovers tonight and move them one step nearer towards clinching their place in the Championship play-offs. The Bluebirds manager believes the experience of players like Sean Morrison, Joe Ralls, Junior Hoilett and Sol Bamba – who all won promotion with the club two years ago – can provide the foundation for another successful mission in reaching the Premier League again. Cardiff welcome Rovers, holding a three-point lead over Derby County in seventh and a four point advantage over Swansea City with just five games left.

The Devilishly Difficult Job Of Filling The Shoes Left Behind In Cardiff By Andrew Lord
