Watch in full, NOW on Cardiff City Player
Malky Mackayspoke to the press on Friday morning ahead of City’s visit to Neil Warnock’s Leeds United.
With Leeds' recent form in both league and cup good, the Cardiff boss is looking forward to a competitive game at to Elland Road on Saturday afternoon.
"Leeds have had a very good home record recently and they had a fantastic result against Tottenham at the weekend," said Mackay. "Neil strengthened again yesterday bringing in another couple of players.
"While they’ve sold Becchio they have brought in Steve Morison and they’ve also brought in Habib Habibou and Stephen Warnock yesterday.
"I’ve never had an easy game at Elland Road and I really enjoy going there. It’s going to be a tough one tomorrow without a doubt. There’s a lot of history attached to that football club and ground and it’s one I have enjoyed going to as a player, coach and manager despite the results. It’s a ground you go to where there is always an atmosphere, there’s always a good crowd and you can sense the history attached to the place."
City are seven points clear at the top of the table, but the Cardiff boss is under no illusions as to how competitive the Championship is this term.
"Everyone’s in exactly the same boat as us," Malky continued. "We all work to try and win as many games as we can. We’ve just got to look after ourselves at this point, it’s as simple as that. It’s far too far out to start thinking of other teams. Once you get down to four or five games you start looking at where people are points wise but not yet."
Travelling City supporters will be hoping to take a closer look at new striker Fraizer Campbell tomorrow afternoon. Malky added: "He’s (Fraizer) delighted to have a fresh challenge with us and he’s ready to play and be part of the squad that goes in and attacks these last eighteen games.
"He’s a good lad and he’s integrated really well in the few days since he’s been here. We were delighted to get him on board."
