Match Preview: Cardiff City vs Brentford

All the info ahead of tomorrow afternoon's trip to Wales

18 Hours ago

Cardiff City vs Brentford, Cardiff City Stadium. 3pm, Saturday 18 Nov, Sky Bet Championship

The Opposition

The Bluebirds are unbeaten at home in the league this season, sitting third in the Sky Bet Championship and are nine points above The Bees as things stand. They have won two of their last four games, losing one and drawing the other.

After winning two of their first 11 games, the team found themselves in the relegation zone by October, prompting the board to replace Paul Trollope with current boss Neil Warnock. In the January transfer window, Warnock brought in players like Allan McGregor on loan from Hull City and Greg Halford from Rotherham United.

Getting rid of no fewer than eight players in the same window, results started to improve. The side won seven of their 10 games that opened the 2017 calendar year.

This season started with five wins out of five; Burton Albion, Aston Villa and Wolves falling to the sword. The corresponding match with Brentford last season saw Cardiff come away with a 2-1 win, despite Sergi Canós opening the scoring for the away side.

The Manager

Neil Warnock has managed more than 10 professional teams in a coaching career that has spanned more than three decades so far. His big break came in 1999, taking over at boyhood club Sheffield United and leading them to promotion, as well as Semi-Finals of the FA Cup and League Cup. 

Spells with Crystal Palace and Queens Park Rangers followed, before he joined Leeds United in 2012. He returned to both Rangers and Palace after leaving The Whites in 2013. He final job before his current role at Cardiff was with Rotherham United. A team struggling at the bottom of the Championship, he rescued them and was offered the chance to stay into the next season. He was appointed as Cardiff boss in October 2016.
