Cardiff City faces third winding-up order

Cardiff City returns to the High Court today to fight off a third winding-up
order brought by HMRC.

The Welsh football club still owes the taxman over £1.75m, having had two
previous orders adjourned after paying off £1m of its overall tax debt. The
Championship club hopes to pay off the rest by selling two plots of land around
the stadium for £1.8m, reports the BBC.

Administration, however, and a 10-point deduction for the play-off hopefuls,
remains possibility.
