Supporters at service station; Ninian files Bluebirds diary with Terry Phillips.

Byline: Terry Phillips

* MORE than 1,000 Bluebirds fans will be at Upton Park tomorrow after exchanging vouchers for tickets at South Mimms service station on the M25.

Originally, the Metropolitan Police and West Ham were keen for the match to be a 'bubble' game, which would force everyone to travel on official coaches.

But all parties then agreed that fans could travel independently, provided they are at South Mimms for the exchange.

Upton Park can usually accommodate between 2,500 and 3,000 away fans.

"We argued tooth and nail to get to that point," said Cardiff chief executive Gethin Jenkins.

"It is a compromise and our aim is to work towards all matches being normal away trips.

"Our view is that the only time there should be a bubble is when we play Swansea in the future."
