Cardiff City have played quite well over the last few games at Burnley, Manchester City and at home to Chelsea without having any luck, since they beat West 2-1 at home on 9th March.
But last night at Brighton they did what they had to do and won the game 2-0, and now they have a chance to stay up.
They are 2 points behind Brighton – who have a game in hand and a better goal difference.
It will still be tough for Cardiff to be safe, but it’s more possible than it was before last night’s result.
Sean Morrison after scoring Cardiff’s second goal
Here’s how things look at the moment in the bottom half of the league with Newcastle still 7 points clear of the relegation zone.
Brighton are in a terrible slump at the moment and have lost their last five league games without being able to score a goal, and we visit Brighton a week on Saturday in the late game.
We still think Newcastle are safe but the Seagulls will have to break out of their losing streak otherwise Cardiff have a chance of catching them.
Here are Newcastle’s last four games and we play both Brighton and Liverpool so will have a say in who will be the Premier League Champions and which clubs get relegated.
Both games are bound to be televised live around the world
