Match Preview: Cardiff City vs. Hull City

The Bluebirds are looking for another win as they go into their match against Hull on Saturday. Unbeaten so far this season, and currently second in the table City are off to a fantastic start to their Premiership campaign.

Bluebirds manager Dave Jones says anything can happen this early in the Championship season

Hull, on the other hand, have gone 26 away matches without a victory and last won on the road in March 2009, seeing them relegated to the Championship.

So far this season they have lost all three of their away matches despite starting their campaign with a 2-0 triumph at home to Swansea.

But despite poor form over the last year the Tigers’ are not a side to be taken lightly as City manager David Jones’ is keen to point out.

Speaking at a press conference ahead of Saturday’s game Jones’ told press not to assume victory as anything could happen this early in the Championship season.

The return of Craig Fagan, who is yet to appear due to a hip injury, is expected to bolster the Hull squad who are  desperate to claw some points following a rocky start to life back in the Championship.

Continued injury problems mean Chopra is unlikely to make the Cardiff City line-up this weekend, with Bellamy likely to be paired with Bothroyd for an attack on Hull’s defence.

While City goalkeeper David Marshall is expected to be passed fit following an elbow injury, with on-loan midfielder Seyi Olofinjana being granted permission to play against his parent club after an agreement was struck allowing Bluebirds centre-back Anthony Gerrard to play for Hull.

Kick off for the home match on Saturday 11 is at 15:00 BST.
