    Cardiff City - v - Leeds United ***Matchday Thread***

    Hello all. I hope we can put in a steady and convincing performance as we embark on the last run of games. Want to go up as worthy and deserving champions. Let's do it Leeds United!



    Leeds United's highly anticipated return to Sky Bet Championship action will get under way on Sunday, with a trip to Wales to take on Cardiff City (12:00pm).* The game against Cardiff will be the first of the nine games remaining as Leeds look to secure promotion back to the Premier League.* Prior to the postponement of the league, the Whites were in fine form, having won five games in a row without conceding a goal, which took Marcelo Bielsa's side to the summit of the table.* Cardiff currently sit two points outside of the Championship Play-Off places and will be hoping to mount a charge for a top six spot in the remaining matches.* The Bluebirds have risen up the table since Neil Harris' arrival in November, losing just five of his 25 matches in charge.**

    Manager/head coach

    Cardiff City: Neil Harris

    Leeds United: Marcelo Bielsa

    League position

    Cardiff City: 9th

    Leeds United: 1st

    Last time at Cardiff City Stadium Stadium

    Tuesday 26 September 2017

    Cardiff City 3 (Zohore 28, 59, Hoilett 37)

    Leeds United 1 (Roofe 67)*

    Team news

    Bielsa has confirmed Jean-Kevin Augustin, Adam Forshaw and Pablo Hernandez will all miss Leeds' trip to the Welsh capital.* Meanwhile Bluebirds duo Lee Tomlin and Nathaniel Mendez-Laing who had picked up injuries prior to the postponement of the league are once more available.

    Officials

    Referee - Andy Woolmer

    Assistant Referee 1 - Daniel Leach

    Assistant Referee 2 - Andrew Fox

    Fourth Official - Lee Swabey

    The key battle

    Lee Tomlin v Liam Cooper

    Forward Tomlin's Cardiff City had been stop-start up until this season.* He joined Cardiff originally in 2017 from Bristol City, but prior to the campaign had made just 16 appearances for the Bluebirds, spending time on loan at Nottingham Forest and Peterborough United.* This season, he has thrived, particularly since the arrival of Harris as manager, netting seven goals and providing seven assists.* If Cardiff are to be successful against Leeds, Tomlin is likely to be one of the main threats and Whites skipper Liam Cooper in the heart of the Leeds defence will be looking to keep him quiet.

    Latest odds

    Cardiff City: 4/1

    Draw: 29/10

    Leeds United: 4/6*

    MOT.

    0 - 2.

    Looks like Bielsa has seen the fridge-light pretty often during lockdown
