Cardiff vs Hull City (preview)

Cardiff vs Hull City (preview)

Cardiff City will play host to struggling Hull City this weekend with far more left to play for for the visitors.

The Tigers sit precariously above the relegation zone, just one point ahead of rivals Leeds United. After a poor season, Hull have picked up of late with memorable victories against Preston and a 4-0 drubbing of Southend.

That said, inconsistency has hampered their chances of moving up the table, and consecutive draws against play-off hopefuls Stoke City and Colchester United have left them looking worringly over their shoulder.


A win for Hull City against Cardiff would be priceless, and cauld preserve their Championship status. They have already beaten Cardiff once this season after hammering the Bluebirds 4-1 in front of a vociferous and baying crowd back in December.


Dean Windass is one player to be watched very carefully, his bullish attitude and experience has been a revelation since arriving on loan in January. Windass now leads the club scoring charts with 7 along with recently recalled Jon Parkin.

Cardiff City are in poor form and have seen a promising season fizzle out. They are ending the season with a whimper, picking up just 3 points from 21 in offer and missing the play-off race entirely. Despite warning players they are fighting for their future, a poor performance last time out saw a 1-0 reversal at QPR.

The supporters deserve a performance in the last home game of the season, and several players have more than a point to prove.

Stephen McPhail will be captain, and needs a more dominant performance than of late to impress. The Bluebirds lack drive and have struggled to score of late.

Top-scorer Michael Chopra is out, suspended, so Warren Feeney will get a rare chance to impress, partnering Steve Thompson (another under pressure) in attack.
