Cardiff face Bristol City in the Sky Bet Championship on Sunday, live on Sky Sports Football.
Cardiff have several concerns ahead of the Severnside derby with Bristol City on Sunday. Sean Morrison missed last week’s 4-2 victory over Birmingham with a fractured wrist and Bluebirds boss Neil Warnock said his captain was due to see a surgeon on Friday.
Joe Ralls, who scored a hat-trick against Birmingham, has been troubled by an ongoing groin problem, while strikers Danny Ward (suspension), Robert Glatzel (hamstring) and Isaac Vassell (quad) will definitely be missing. But Lee Tomlin has trained this week after missing the last couple of games and Northern Ireland winger Gavin Whyte should shake off a niggle to feature.
Bristol City have also had problems in the build-up to the Sky Bet Championship clash and influential midfielder Josh Brownhill could miss out. Brownhill has not trained all week after suffering a back spasm in the Robins’ 2-2 draw at Barnsley.
Hungary midfielder Adam Nagy and full-back Jack Hunt are also injury doubts, while Jay Dasilva (tibia fracture) is unlikely to be back until December at the earliest. Senegalese striker Famara Diedhiou completes a three-match ban, so Marley Watkins could again feature in attack alongside Andreas Weimann.
Cardiff ended a four-game winless streak last weekend, following a thrilling 4-2 victory over Birmingham at the Cardiff City Stadium. That came after a narrow 1-0 defeat to Swansea on October 27 and but before that, they’d registered two successive points, holding Millwall to a 2-2 draw at The Den four days after Lee Tomlin’s dramatic equaliser in the 1-1 draw with Sheffield Wednesday.
Bristol City, meanwhile, are looking for their first win since October 23, following consecutive 2-2 draws with Barnsley and Wigan in their previous two outings. That last victory came when they beat Charlton 2-1 at Ashton Gate and was a welcome boost after the 3-0 defeat away at Luton on October 19.
What the managers said…
Cardiff boss Neil Warnock: “It’s always special for me and I always get a loud welcome from their fans. They are two very good sets of fans and clubs. With the game on TV too, it’ll be a super atmosphere. It’s a rivalry I’m looking forward to.”
Bristol City boss Lee Johnson: “I’m very much looking forward to it. It’s always a passionate game, the fans will be there in their numbers and that’s going to be key. Our record (away from home) has been decent so far this season and it’s going to need to be decent again because of the quality of the Cardiff players.
“The lads have been great. To be in the position that we are in, to have lost one in 14 (games), given the situation of so many key players being out for whatever reason. But at this stage of the season, with this new group, it’s still a learning curve and we have to make sure that we are peaking into that last 10/15 games of the season.”
