Morison pre-Birmingham City | It’ll be a good match
The Bluebirds welcome Birmingham City to Cardiff City Stadium this Saturday, August 13th - 12:30pm KO.
City boss Steve Morison spoke to the assembled press on Thursday to preview the game.
Speaking about our opponents, Steve said: “They’re really organised. They’ve had a great start and they look good.
“They’re very structured in what they do and have some excellent players. It’ll be a good match.”
The two sides will do battle in 30+ degree heat in the Welsh capital on Saturday, with additional stoppages already scheduled to break up the action if it does reach that heat.
“We’ll have a few more water breaks than usual,” Morison continued. “They can be positive and negative. Sometimes you’ll have the momentum and then you don’t want a break. But in other instances, it gives you a chance to have a minute with the boys when it isn’t going the way you want it to. The safety of the players is the most important thing.
“But the sun always puts a smile on people’s faces. We have to make the most of it too. It won’t be long and we’ll be back with gale-force winds and rain.
“We’re training regularly in this heat anyway. It’ll be the same for both teams on Saturday.”
