The Bluebirds’ unbeaten start to the season was ended by Brighton & Hove Albion in midweek, with the Premier League side earning a deserved 2-0 win in the EFL Cup second-round tie.
Mick McCarthy will not be too disheartened by that loss, however, as his side have started their league campaign well with two draws and two victories to date.
Cardiff followed up a draw against Barnsley with three points against Blackpool, and likewise when seeing off Millwall 3-1 a few days on from drawing 2-2 at Peterborough United.
Incredibly, all eight of City’s goals in the league this season have come via headers, with Aden Flint responsible for half of those, making him the division’s top scorer.
McCarthy made seven changes to Cardiff’s starting lineup for the midweek loss to Brighton and should revert back to a similar lineup to the one that started against Millwall.
Ryan Giles has made a flying start to his loan spell from Wolverhampton Wanderers, assisting four goals in four appearances, and is among those who were fully rested on Tuesday.

Questions remain over Kieffer Moore‘s future beyond the end of the transfer window, but McCarthy looks certain to start the Welsh striker this weekend.
As for the visitors, Pearson is likely to make at least a couple of changes following the disappointing home loss to Swansea last week.
