The pressure was increased on Neil Harris on Wednesday night following his sides disappointing defeat at Coventry City on Wednesday evening.
Harris led the Bluebirds to the play-offs last term, but just three victories in their opening 13 matches this time around has seen the South Wales outfit slip to 18th in the Championship standings – just five points above the relegation-zone.
Cardiff collected a late point against Harris’ old club Millwall on Saturday, but were second best at St Andrew’s, suffering their fifth loss of season thanks to Tyler Walker’s 54th-minute winner.

They now face two potential crucial home matches against Luton Town and Huddersfield Town in the coming days – which would leave the former Lions boss’ future in serious doubt if results don’t improve.
Former Cardiff striker Jay Bothroyd had his say on the matter on Twitter, and reckons that if Harris is replaced then the Welsh outfit should go for his ex-Bluebirds teammate Craig Bellamy.
You can see Bothroyd’s tweet below:
If the manager is changed, it has to be Bellas, he’s worked with some of the best managers in the world he has so much playing experience and he has so much passion for the club and that will filter down to the players! https://t.co/Uu7L5v7cNp

Whilst Bellamy knows the club well having previously worked and played at the Cardiff City Stadium, I very much doubt it’s an appointment that Cardiff would be considering.
Judging by their previous few managers in Neil Warnock and now Harris, if results don’t go better in the coming weeks and the latter is sacked, I’d imagine the owners would opt for a more experienced face than Bellamy and avoid the possibility of Cardiff getting sucked into a relegation battle.
