Cardiff City will aim to continue their winning start under Neil Warnock, who led them to victory over Bristol City in his first match in charge.

Marouane Chamakh and Kieran Richardson are waiting to make their debuts, having been unused subs on Friday.

Sheffield Wednesday won 1-0 at Huddersfield on Sunday.

With a three-day turnaround between games, head coach Carlos Carvalhal has said he will not take any risks with players if they are less than 100% fit.
