Etheridge ready for busy festive period
Neil Etheridge concedes the busy festive period could be vital in Cardiff's survival plans.
The Bluebirds sit 19th in the table on the back of Saturday's 1-0 defeat at Everton but have little time to lick their wounds, with Wolves set to visit the Welsh capital on Friday.
It is then onto a very busy period over the next month where Cardiff face West Ham, Southampton, Watford, Manchester United, Crystal Palace and Leicester, before hosting Tottenham on New Year's Day.
Goalkeeper Etheridge has been one of the club's star players this season but is set for a spell out of the side in January when he represents the Philippines at the Asian Cup.
For now though his focus is on Premier League survival and says the mood within the camp is upbeat as they look to build some momentum over busy festive period.
"I think that our target now is exactly what it was at the start of the season," he told FOX Sports' Dean Perretta.
"The boys are still upbeat, we've got points on the board and we know that over the Christmas period leading into January is a very crucial time for us.
"The boys are positive, and we believe that we've got enough in our dressing room and a manager (Neil Warnock) to keep us in the Premier League."
Jack Ogalbe has been working for the team since his student days, having enjoyed a successful placement. He is an avid West Ham fan but also enjoys writing on rugby union, golf, tennis and cycling.
