Cardiff City will be hoping they can build up a positive run of form heading into the festive period under the management of Neil Harris. 

The Bluebirds are currently sat 12th in the Championship table after winning their last two matches in the second-tier, which means they’re

One player that has caught the eye with some strong performances for Cardiff in recent weeks is Kieffer Moore, who now has seven goals to his name this term in all competitions.

Football League World’s Cardiff City supporter Ben Johnsey praised the impact of Moore, who has caught the eye with a number of impressive displays for Harris’ side.

“After back-to-back wins Cardiff are looking like a different team to the one that played Coventry. This feels largely down to striker Kieffer Moore, who’s found the net three times in the last two games leaving fans excited about finally finding a clinical finisher.

“It’s fair to say Cardiff have struggled to find a consistent striker in previous seasons. Going ten years without a striker scoring more than 15 goals in one campaign, the last being Jay Bothroyd in the 10/11 season.”

“Knowing this, the majority of Cardiff fans were extremely excited with the signing of Kieffer Moore this summer, with many feeling he was exactly what Cardiff needed to get up and running. While our season as a whole hasn’t gone to plan, the Welsh international has made a serious impact scoring seven goals, the fourth best in the division to date.”

Another player that has been involved in Cardiff’s recent turnaround in form is Sheyi Ojo, with the former Liverpool winger having three assists to his name in his last two matches for the Bluebirds.

“Kieffer’s not the only one stepping up lately, Sheyi Ojo has really found his feet in the last two games getting a goal and three assists in that time. The Liverpool loanee has made a huge impact since arriving, somewhat cushioning the blow left by the mysterious release of Mendez-Laing in the summer.”

Johnsey also issued high-praise for Mark Harris, who netted his first goal for the club in their recent win over Luton Town last weekend.

“Another player making a name for himself is Cardiff Academy graduate Mark Harris, the Welsh Under-21 international made his first start in three years against Luton scoring his first goal in the process. Harris went on to start against Huddersfield once again making a good impression of himself.

“While Mark’s performances have been great I feel he’s brought a lot more to the table than just his goal. Adding tempo and determination, (something Cardiff have lacked this season) he’s helped his teammates to get to their best, Kieffer Moore especially.

“With his ability to get in behind and drag defenders away leaving space for others Harris has gone a long way to replace Danny Ward, a player who I feel Cardiff have missed more than anyone would have guessed on his departure.

“Cardiff are far from out of the woods yet, but their recent form has definitely bought Harris the time he needs to get the squad back into a top-six race.

“Fans will be hoping players like Moore and Ojo continue to work so well together, while also handing more chances to Mark Harris. With January fast approaching it will be interesting to see if Cardiff continue to invest or stick with what they’ve got. “

Cardiff are set to return to action this weekend when they take on promotion-chasing Watford, who are currently sat third in the second-tier standings heading into the game at Vicarage Road.
