City boss Nathan Jones doesn’t expect his team to face the former Premier League club Cardiff City with any fear today.
The Hatters face a Bluebirds team that fought for form early in the season and nowhere near mastering the play-off challenge they expected.
City manager Neil Harris still has striker Kieffer Moore in his ranks. Wigan Athletic signed £ 2million with four goals in the summer despite appearing internationally in Wales where he really stood out, beating Finland in both nations.
For Jones, however, it won’t be any different than for a regular week in the championship, as he said, “If we’re scared when we meet a good player, we’re going to be scared all season because everyone is Team has someone who can really, really hurt you.
« This is the championship, with the budgets, with the level of the player, so we have to make sure that we are there week after week and that we have got and are getting better.
« You see Lukas Jutkiewicz (Birmingham striker) and he’s as tough as you’d expect in the box. Kieffer Moore is exactly the same. « .
« Cardiff were in the play-offs last year but it’s week after week, these are the challenges we want.
« Then we play Norwich here, then we go to Swansea, there are big, big games coming, but that’s what we wanted, that’s what we wanted when we set out.
Bluebirds boss Harris made an impressive transfer coup in the summer by enticing highly rated younger Liverpool player Harry Wilson, another Welsh international, to a full season loan switch.
He also brought in Anfield teammate Sheyi Ojo to join an expensive squad the City boss has available. Jones did not lose this. He added: “You paid a lot of money for a lot of players there.
« Boy Gladzo (Robert Glatzel), Kieffer Moore, Junior Hoilett, Boy (Josh) Murphy, Harry Wilson, Marlon Pack, they have a lot of quality there that they paid money for, so there is no wise me suggests highlighting a few.
« Structurally we have to be good, tactically, we have to be good and we were good the other day.
« We encountered a really good threat on a front pair as Jutkiewicz is like Kieffer Moore at what they do and he is very good at what he does. « .
« Scott Hogan is a perfect slide for a tall man. So we know that if Cardiff plays up twice, we’re good at fighting that. So we just have to be tactically ready. « .
« We run into different threats every week, but they’re all real threats, and that’s the beauty of the championship. ”
