Preview: Cardiff City -Vs- Hull City

Hull City travel to Wales on Saturday afternoon, looking to end the only 100% home record in the football league as they take on Cardiff City.

Steve Bruce`s side travel to Cardiff in good form having won their last two matches whilst Cardiff City have lost their last two on the road, seeing the previous league leaders drop from first to third. As a result, Saturday`s match sees third take on fourth with both teams on 28 points, separated only by five goals.

City continue to have injury concerns over Liam Rosenior, Alex Bruce and Ahmed Elmohamady who all played against Wolves with niggling injuries. Bruce appears to be struggling the most, meaning Abdoulaye Faye may return to the team while Robbie Brady remains on standby should Rosenior or Elmohamady be sidelined.

Bruce has this week moved to bring in midfield reinforcements as Sunderland`s Irish midfielder David Meyler is set to go straight into the eighteen man squad tomorrow, although a starting place is unlikely.

Cardiff are without Craig Bellamy, Tommy Smith and Jordan Mutch, although they have no fresh injury concerns following their surprising 5-4 loss at Charlton Athletic on Tuesday night.

The Tigers will look to build upon their last visit to Cardiff, a Tuesday night fixture when the two Play-Off hopefuls met. An early McNaughton own goal, Chester`s goal of the season contender and Aaron Mclean sealed a comfortable 3-0 win for City which completed a double following a 2-1 win at the KC Stadium.

Prediction: Cardiff City 1 - 1 Hull City
