The Sky Blues entertain Cardiff City in the final home fixture of 2022

Meet Cardiff City:

The Bluebirds head into today's clash, hovering above the relegation zone after what has been a mixed season so far.


Cardiff parted ways with Steve Morrison earlier in the season, with Mark Hudson taking over on what was an initial caretaker basis, before being given the job on a permanent basis.

Mark Robins looks ahead to Cardiff City:

"We've got two really good games coming up now against Cardiff City and Bristol City. We're looking forward to them," he has said.

"We're in good form, there's no doubt about it, decent form. If we just believe in ourselves that little bit more, if we just show that little bit more bravery, then these defeats will turn into draws and wins.

"We will start picking point up consistently, and that's what you need to do in this league."
