Kieffer Moore and Cardiff City: How’s it gone so far? What issues does he face? What’s next?

Published

Kieffer Moore has proven a regular starter for Cardiff City so far this season since arriving at the club in the transfer window.

Just how well is he doing, though? And what lies ahead for him in the coming weeks and months?

We take a look at the state of play for the striker in the Welsh capital…

How’s it gone so far?

You’d have to say very well indeed.

He’s come into the Cardiff City side and stayed there. Evidently, he is the man Neil Harris wants leading the line ahead of Robert Glatzel at the moment.

He’s scored twice so far in the Championship and set up another, with him proving the difference as he laid on Sheyi Ojo’s goal at the weekend against Preston.

He’s averaging 11.6 aerial duels won a game at the moment, too, which is both massively impressive and indicative of how well he fits what Neil Harris wants from his strikers.

What issues does he face?

The big issue right now, as for any striker, would be a dip in form and the replacement coming in and doing well.

In fairness, the way Moore has started it currently seems unlikely he is going to suddenly lose form and be dropped but in this congested season both injury and rotation pose just as much of a threat to a player staying in the side.

Robert Glatzel will be eager to get into the side and show what he can do after finishing last season in decent shape but that’s an issue for the strikers on an individual level – Neil Harris will be eager to see them both spur one another on.

What’s next?

Keep doing what he’s doing.

Cardiff have started this season with two wins, a draw and two losses meaning they are in mid-table.

Their away form is outstripping their home form and, as a team, they need to find a way to get more results on their own turf.

Moore’s style of play, holding the ball up and dominating in the air is perfect for Cardiff looking to earn points on the road when they’re perhaps out of possession more.

At home, they need to find a different method for winning games and Moore’s approach up front, and maybe looking at what he can do different for home games, could help them with that.
