Garry Monk leads the team to Wales, returning to the club he was arch rivals with for years. Kyle Bartley, Pablo Hernandez, Pep Clotet, James Beattie will also have an eye on this game. Monk won’t be to phased but the ex-Swansea players are sure to encounter a hostile reception as Leeds look to make it two from two after Tuesdays win against Blackburn.

I don’t really know how to describe Cardiff City at the moment. Probably like us the off field situation gets the headlines even if the team were doing well, but their not. Cardiff haven’t looked great and this could be the perfect time to play them, especially at home where they will be under pressure to turn the run of bad results into a positive. We are without the injured Gaetano Berardi but should have Liam Bridcutt and Eunan O’Kane who both went of with slight injuries the other night.

Consistency is next for a side who have won twice this season and need to start putting a run together. I would keep the same team as Tuesday as I think there will be more space to exploit behind Cardiff, Marcus Antonsson more suited than Chris Wood. If we play it right we could potentially pick the hosts off but if we sit back too much they will inevitably score.

One To Watch – Anthony Pilkington – The winger dropped down from Norwich City and has probably been the Welsh sides stand out player since his arrival.

About Author

Born in Gibraltar, raised in Scotland from a very young age. Been a huge fan of Leeds United since I could walk and talk, thanks to my Dad, the English half of me. After a few years in Australia I moved to Leeds, the trips from Scotland down to the city a few times a season didn't cut it. Love the city. Love the people, and the 12 hour round trip to Elland Road is about a 20 minute round trip. Love writing about the club, the more I write the more I feel comfortable doing it. As long as it's enjoyable I'll continue to do so, keep looking to step it up and progress as well. Leeds United is more than just a football team for me, as is it with so many others.
