2 Cardiff City dilemmas facing Steve Morison during this international break



Steve Morison has overseen an excellent turnaround at Cardiff City to pull the club away from any relegation concerns since the turn of the year.

The Bluebirds have had a very disappointing season on the whole having flirted with the play-offs last term but they have a chance to build momentum in the final eight games of the campaign.

Steve Morison had his contract extended to the end of next season recently, still nothing long term and the former Millwall man will be desperate to prepare adequately for the final year of his contract in the Welsh capital.

With not a lot to play for, apart from the South Wales derby around the corner, it is important that this break from league action does not negatively impact the Bluebirds.

Here, we have taken a look at two dilemmas facing Steve Morison during this international break…


It is important that Morison keeps levels of arousal high heading into the season’s final stretch.

Seeing how a team finishes the season can sometimes be an indicator of how they will fare in the next one, and in that Cardiff need to continue their upward trajectory.

There are four loan players remaining at Cardiff during the break, while Tommy Doyle is away with England U21, and they will need to stay motivated to prove their worth after the interval.

Cardiff have ten players on international duty at the moment, Rubin Colwill, Will Vaulks and Mark Harris, Wales, George Ratcliffe, Isaak Davies, Eli King and Ollie Denham, Wales U21, Mark McGuinness and Joel Bagan, Republic of Ireland U21, and Doyle.

Physical wear and tear and fatigue could rule a good chunk of those players out of the South Wales derby, which gives Morison a lot to ponder for the international break.

Remarkably, no one has ever done the double in a league campaign over the other in the South Wales derby, having been in the same division in 33 seasons.

Raising the stakes considerably as Swansea travel to Cardiff with a chance to make history, having won the reverse fixture 3-0 in October.
