Stephen McPhail has said that his Cardiff City outfit face two ‘massive’ home games in their bid to make the Championship play-offs.
Cardiff host Derby County on Tuesday before entertaining Leeds United on Saturday, with two more wins likely to be enough to ensure their progress to the play-offs.
The Bluebirds maintained their seven match unbeaten run with a hard fought 1-0 win over Barnsley at the weekend with McPhail believing that victory at Oakwell will give the Welsh outfit confidence going into the final three games of the season.
“We’ve drawn too many games. We’ve dominated games and gave silly, sloppy goals away at the end,” the man who played his schoolboy football with Home Farm told BBC Sport.
Fellow Irish international – and Cardiff’s match winner over the weekend; Liam Laurence has said that his side still have plenty of work to do in order to ensure a play-off spot and has urged supporters to be patient during upcoming games:
“We’re trying not to look over our shoulders,” said Lawrence. “We’re trying just to focus on the next game.
“Obviously we know now that some of the results have gone for us but Middlesbrough have won so we’ve still got work to do.
“We hope the fans are patient because that’s the main thing now, being patient at home. Getting behind us is really important.”
