Cardiff City (H)

31 July 2012

Malky Mackay's Cardiff City looking strong for this evening

A strong Cardiff City side will take on the Robins this evening in our fourth pre-season match of the summer.

Cheltenham Town drew 1-1 with both Evesham United and Port Talbot before beating a strong Birmingham City side 1-0 at the weekend courtesy of a Harry Hooman goal. Tonight's opponents will pose another stern test for the Robins who will be looking to continue a strong pre-season ahead of the 2012-13 campaign.

Kick off is at 7.45pm this evening and supporters can pay on the turnstiles. All area of the ground will be open as they were at the weekend.

Ticket Prices

Adults - £10
Concessions/Juniors - £5

Team News

Harry Hooman is set to partner Alan Bennett in defence this evening with trialists Jordan Hibbert and Tristan Plummer set to be given an extended run out in an effort to earn themselves something with the club. It is also likely that Darryl Duffy will be welcomed back into action after being given a breather in the game against Birmingham City.

Cardiff City will be fielding a strong side for at least 60 minutes including Robert Earnshaw, Peter Whittingham and new signing Etien Velikonja. Malky Mackay's Red Dragons/Bluebirds were beaten 1-0 by Forest Green a few days ago.
