Cardiff vs Leicester team news

Cardiff

With the same number of wins and losses this season in Championship, Cardiff have been pretty inconsistent over the course of their campaign and the same is true for their recent matches with two wins, one draw, and three losses in the last six rounds. Overall, they are 11th in the standings, not too far from the playoff zone.

When it comes to team news, Aaron Ramsey and Callum O'Dowda are currently out with injuries.

Predicted LineupAlnwick – Ng, McGuinness, Goutas, Collins – Ralls, Bowler, Wintle, Colwill, Grant – Etete

Leicester

After the first half of the season in Championship, it's pretty clear that Leicester are on their way back to Premier League, which is hardly a surprise given the overall quality of the team. Still, the Foxes have been impressive so far, collecting 59 points from 24 games. That being said, there's plenty of football to be played and a few teams like Ipswich, Southampton, and Leeds will wait to pounce if given the opportunity.

Meanwhile, Maresca will once again have to manage without the services of the injured trio – Marc Albrighton, Kasey McAteer, and Jamie Vardy.

Predicted LineupHermansen – Pereira, Vestergaard, Faes, Justin – Ndidi, Winks, Dewsbury-Hall – Fatawu, Daka, Mavididi

Player to watch: Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall

While Leicester's success so far in Championship has largely been a team effort, with many of their players contributing to it, the name that perhaps stood out the most so far is Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall. The local hero born in Leicester, Dewsbury-Hall has been in great form this season and has 7 goals and 9 assists in the league so far.
