Vital Preview: Port Vale v Cardiff

Cardiff's first defeat of the season came on Saturday when an injury time own goal condemned us to defeat at Wolves, tonight we turn out attentions to the Capital One Cup.

Vale Park is the setting as League 1 side Port Vale look to upset us.

Port Vale could bring in Colin Daniel and Byron Moore after they impressed after coming on in their first defeat of the season at the weekend also, Micky Adams hasn't changed his side much this season but he might now.

Federico Macheda is in line for his full Cardiff debut having made a return to fitness from an injury suffered in pre season, which had seen him look sharp and impress. Kagisho Dikgacoi should also be involved.

As he did in the first round OGS will make changes.

Simon Moore is likely to come in for David Marshal in goal and Jazzi Barnum-Bobb, who made his debut in the win over Coventry in the first round, Declan John and Joe Ralls all likely to start.

Runners up in the competition as a Championship side in 2012 why shouldn't we do well again this season? Promotion is the priority but a Capital One Cup run is something that OGS would like and we'll be the favourites to progress tonight, not that it'll be easy.
