THE TEAM NEWS

CARDIFF

  • Cardiff resume their season well in the fight to make the play-offs and they will be determined to make a strong push towards that goal between now and the end of the league phase.
  • The Bluebirds had won their final game before the season’s stoppage with a comfortable 0-2 away victory at rock-bottom Barnsley.
  • Manager Neil Harris has been boosted by the news that Danny Ward and Jazz Richards have committed to playing for the club beyond the expiration of their contracts to see through the season, although Richards is a doubt for this game with a calf injury

LEEDS UTD

  • League-leaders Leeds United return to action within touching distance of a long-awaited promotion back to the Premier League after a 16-year absence.
  • Leeds have been vocal in their support for the Championship to be restarted and Marcelo Bielsa side, who have historically started the season at a very high level, will be determined to finish what they have started.
  • Influential attacking midfielder Pablo Hernandez will not feature against Cardiff due to injury and neither will striker Jean-Kevin Augustin, whose injury issues have continued since the side’s return to training.

THE PREDICTION

A clash of styles is in prospect at the Cardiff City Stadium as the direct Bluebirds face the fast-passing, high-pressing Whites. Leeds’ form has been outstanding following their last two pre-seasons under Bielsa and no side will be more recharged and prepared more for the season’s resumption than they are. Despite a tricky away fixture, they should be expected to come away with a crucial victory.
