Albion fans in a corner of the stadium were singing "We're blue and we know we are" as the game got under way.

You will have seen team news and line-ups elsewhere on this site but essentially David Lopez and Orlandi replace Vicente, who is on the bench, and, of course, the sadly injured Hoskins.

I don't think he was trying to rub it in or anything but the matchday announcer has just mentioned in his build-up that there are 21 points between these two sides. The more significant number for Albion is the four-point deficit compared to sixth place.
Dean Hammond mentioned on The Argus today that the squad have a target figure in mind if they are to finish in a play-off berth. What is that target? Well Andrea Orlandi was talking about 11 more wins when*I spoke to him after the recent defeat at Sheffield Wednesday. So ten more then, on that basis. They will be doing well if they get one tonight. Cardiff have 13 wins and a draw in 15 home outings to date.

They have been red hot on home turf this season. Now Albion are out to give their scarlet-clad hosts the blues and close in on the target which they still believe can take them to the play-offs. We’re at Cardiff City for Championship action.
