The financial future of FA Cup semi-finalists Cardiff was still hanging in the balance on Thursday after a High Court judge delayed his ruling on a move by bankers to force immediate repayment of loans worth £24million.

Swiss investment bank Langston is seeking "summary judgment" against the Coca-Cola Championship club, whose lawyers have argued that the dispute should go forward to a full trial of the action.

After a two-day hearing in London, Mr Justice Briggs said he would take time to consider his ruling. Judgment may be given next Wednesday.
