West Brom are the visitors for tonight`s game and there are certain to be hostile receptions for Baggies manager Bryan Robson and new striker John Hartson. Robson is disliked by many I South Wales over his treatment of City heroes Robert Earnshaw, who was routinely criticised by Robson despite top-scoring for WBA before being shifted out to Norwich, and Jason Koumas whose bitter feud with his manager has been well publicised and resulted in threats to end Koumas` career as well as fines in the region of £60k given to Koumas. John Hartson is a Swansea fan and despite his solid workmanlike performances for Wales has never been popular in Cardiff. Hartson is new to WBA and struck a brace on his debut for the club on Saturday.
West Brom are unchanged from the win over Hull and should line up:
Zuberbuhler, Robinson, Perry, Curtis Davies, Watson, Greening, Quashie, Wallwork, Gera, Hartson, Ellington.
Subs: Kuszczak, Chaplow, Albrechtsen, Inamoto, Carter
A strong team full of premiership experience and an attacking force to be feared in Hartson and Ellington. Junichi Inamoto will return to Ninian Park where he spent some time on loan season before last.
Cardiff may be forced into one change following Darren Purses injury doubts after limping out of the Barnsley game with a calf strain. Roger Johnson will come in and his place on the bench taken by Chris Barker. Kevin Cooper is still unavailable with a knee problem. Purse, Scimeca and Kevin Campbell all joined from WBA and will be hoping to impress.
A big test this for both sides and whilst WBA aim for automatic promotion while Cardiff are looking more towards the play-offs, City are more than capable of wining and will be looking to continue their energy and slick passing in front of an optimistic Ninian Park crowd.
