MUTCH WANTS HOME FORM AWAY

City midfielder looks to big week on the roadCity midfielder Jordon Mutch has called for the Bluebirds to take their home form away, as the Bluebirds take on Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium on Wednesday night.
Malky Mackay’s men travel to Staffordshire on the back of two tough home encounters against Manchester United and Arsenal, with back-to-back away trips now looming to start off a busy, six-match, December period.
And speaking to press at the Vale Resort this morning Mutch said: “We must take our home form away, if we do that we can pick up quite a few points.
“Our aim is to do the business Wednesday and Saturday. We are capable of winning against Stoke and Crystal Palace and will do all we can to achieve that.
“It feels weird playing a midweek match at Premier League level because it’s not often something you do in this league – most of us are all used to that here from our experience in the Championship and we are ready for that challenge.”
City travel to face Mark Hughes’ side with just one place and goal difference separating the two sides.
But despite the close proximity between the two in the table, the England Under-21 International insists the goal for the Bluebirds is very much the same.
“The aim is the same as it was on Saturday against Arsenal and in every game for us, to get three points,” continued Mutch.
“Whether it's Stoke City or Arsenal every game is massive this season. The Gunners are top of the League for a reason and it was one of those days when they were too good on day.”
As for the 22-year old, it’s a case of continuing to build on some impressive Premier League performances to date, now a regular fixture in the top flight with the Bluebirds.
“My aim to be consistent and keep my place,” said Mutch. “I love playing Premier League football. That was a dream as I grew up and my aim is to do everything I can to stay there. It's important I keep working to improve.”
