Cardiff City ask fans to kindly keep off the grass

Matthew Lewis

This weekend, Bolton Wanderers will travel to Cardiff City Stadium to face the Championship champions in Cardiff City. The Red Dragons have already secured the league title last weekend and automatic promotion in the match before that. Save for creating a party atmosphere and building up the point total, they have nothing to play for. Of course, that doesn't mean the match will be easy for Bolton by any stretch of the imagination.

Last week's 0-0 home draw against Charlton saw Cardiff clinch promotion with three matches left to play in the season. The fans, obviously jubilant that their long-suffering squad had finally reached the top flight, stormed the pitch as fans tend to do. The scenes were, in a word, spectacular.

This weekend, with Bolton in town, Cardiff City will lift the trophy. Those celebrations are planned for after the final whistle. As a result, Cardiff City have asked their fans to respect the players and the proceedings in a statement on the club's official website. Manager Malky Mackay urged the fans:

"Saturday's game with Bolton is sure to make for another fantastic afternoon in the Capital of Wales.

"My staff, players and I are thoroughly looking forward to performing in front of our fantastic home support for our final home fixture and we will be doing everything we can to sign off the campaign at Cardiff City Stadium with another three points.

"The celebrations following the Charlton match last week were truly special. While we should rightly continue our festivities into Saturday evening and over the coming weeks, I would urge supporters to follow the advice of Cardiff City safety stewards and ground management in keeping off the pitch at all times this Saturday. That way the players will be able to collect their medals and raise the famous trophy to you."
