Cardiff City

Last updated: Sat 04 January 2020 09:44
In Brief

Cardiff thrashed at QPR. Joe Bennett and Joe Ralls doubts while Nathaniel Mendez-Laing sidelined.

Looking Back

Suffered humiliation as they lost 6-1 at QPR having even been down 6-0 at one stage on Wednesday and there should now be plenty of motivation to immediately bounce back.

Wins seem to have deserted them lately so will be keen to get back to winning ways in this one.

Looking Ahead

Neil Harris has treated the FA Cup well in recent seasons at Millwall and especially with plenty to prove may not make too many changes for this one.

Joe Bennett and Joe Ralls are doubts while Nathaniel Mendez-Laing is now expected to miss the rest of the campaign. Matt Connolly and Isaac Vassell remain out.

Points of Interest

Have seven wins, four draws and one defeat on home soil in the league this season.

Carlisle United

Last updated: Sat 04 January 2020 09:05
In Brief

Christie Elliott, Jarrad Branthwaite, Mohammed Ali Sagaf, Stefan Scougall and Hallam Hope are all doubts; Elliott Watt signs on loan.

Looking Back

Carlisle United proved to be no match for promotion-chasers Crewe Alexandra; beaten 4-1 at Gresty Road on New Year's Day.

Head coach Chris Beech made just the one change to his starting line-up with loanee Ryan Loft handed a recall to the side.

Looking Ahead

Beech has a whole host of injury concerns ahead of the trip to Cardiff City in the F.A. Cup.

Mohammed Ali Sagaf and Hallam Hope were both forced off with knee and back injuries in New Year's Day.

Christie Elliott (virus), Jarrad Branthwaite (thigh) and Stefan Scougall (ear infection) are also rated doubtful.

He is set to hand a debut to Elliot Watt, who has signed on loan from Wolves for the rest of the season.

Josh Dixon (knee) and Kelvin Etuhu (hamstring) remain sidelined with long-term injuries.

Points of Interest

It will be the first competitive meeting since the 2000/01 season. Carlisle United haven't won any of the last ten meetings.
