Cardiff City will be without key midfielder Peter Whittingham today who is ruled out by injury meaning Jordon Mutch gets a chance against his former club alongside Gunnarsson who is OK after a back injury. Craig Conway keeps his place after a run of impressive form, while the dangerous Craig Noone is dropped to allow the inclusion of Kim Bo Kyung. Whitts has a knee injury and will be out for a couple of weeks.

At the back, Malky has restored Matthew Connolly to the starting line-up, but Andrew Taylor misses out so on-loan Simon Lappin makes a rare appearance. Hopefully he can keep Burkey quiet…!

There is no place for either Helguson or Gestede so Bellamy and Mason will provide the attacking prowess – that should suggest we keep the ball on the floor!
