Bluebirds looking for fourth straight win as they host Bristol City

Cardiff City Stadium at dusk

CARDIFF City will be hoping to secure their fourth win in as many games as they host promotion rivals Bristol City in the Severnside derby on Sunday.

Cardiff moved four points clear of third placed Aston Villa after a hard-fought 1-0 win away at Ipswich on Wednesday night.

The Bluebirds were unlucky not to go ahead in the first minute after Matthew Connolly shot wide from a corner from 12 yards.

In the end it was Kenneth Zohore who opened the scoring, calming poking home off a rebound from his spectacular volley to give the away side the lead.

A late rally from Ipswich came to nothing with stellar performances from Greg Halford and Bruno Manga especially keeping Ipswich at bay.

Their third win on the trot keeps the Bluebirds with a chance of making up their current nine point deficit to Wolves after the league leaders blew a two goal lead to draw 2-2 with Norwich City.

Team News

After a nightmare 48 hours for Cardiff City Neil Warnock has confirmed that full-back Lee Peltier will be out for at least a month after only making his return two weeks ago.

The Liverpudlian joins City’s growing injury list that includes Armand Traore, Joe Bennett, Callum Paterson and club captain Sean Morrison, who was forced off after 40 minutes on Wednesday.

Warnock however is confident that Morrison will be fit to face Bristol City on Sunday.
