A in-depth look at Town’s upcoming trip to Cardiff City in the Sky Bet Championship

- Cardiff City vs Huddersfield Town
- Wednesday 6 March 2024; 7.45pm
- A preview ahead of our trip to South Wales

André Breitenreiter will be looking to make it consecutive away wins as Town Head Coach when his side makes the trip to South Wales to play Cardiff City on Wednesday evening.

Enjoying a recent good run of form, Town will be looking to build on their current run - having secured a point with ten men against second place Leeds United.

Meanwhile, Erol Bulut's side will be hopeful of adding to their tally and make it three wins on the bounce - something they have not managed since September last year.


Currently sitting 11th in the table - nine points above the Terriers - Cardiff have struggled to build momentum throughout the duration of their current campaign. Losing 16 of their 35 Sky Bet Championship fixtures, the Welsh side have 14 wins and five draws to their name, with two of those victories coming in their last two games.

Following relegation from the Premier League at the end of the 2018/19 season, Cardiff have only finished within the Play-Off places on one occasion since returning to the second division. Now less than ten points behind sixth place Hull City, a final promotion push is a feat they will be hoping to replicate in their current campaign.

Appointed in June 2023, Erol Bulut arrived in South Wales for his first position within English football, having initially spent the whole of his career coaching Turkish sides. Taking charge of Yeni Malatyaspor, Alanyaspor, Fenerbahçe and Gaziantep, Bulut parted ways with his former club to join the Bluebirds indefinitely.

A former left-back, the Turkish Coach began his career with Eintracht Frankfurt before playing for Fenerbahçe, Olympiacos, and nine other clubs across Europe between 1992 and 2012. Managing just 35 games with Cardiff City so far, Bulut has won 14, drawn five, and lost 16, with his side accumulating 47 points in total this campaign.


It was a 66th minute goal from defender Perry Ng which saw the Bluebirds claim all three points against Bristol City last Saturday - taking their overall win tally to 14 for the 2023/24 season.

Enjoying just 40% possession and having fewer shots on target than the opposition, Cardiff made the better of their chances in the final third - a single goal proving to be the difference between the two sides.

Previous Starting XI: Horvath; Wilson-Esbrand, Goutas, Phillips, Ng; Ralls, Siopis; Colwill, Turnbull, Bowler; Etete (4-2-3-1)


Rarely deviating from a 4-2-3-1 formation during their first 24 league fixtures, Cardiff have however chosen to experiment with 4 alternative structures in their last 11 games. Tweaking their structure initially to a 4-3-3, Bulut's side won just one of three fixtures in this shape, losing to promotion-chasing Leicester City and Leeds United.

More recently shifting to a 3-4-1-2 against West Bromwich Albion, which ended in a 2-0 defeat, before opting for a 4-4-2 away at Carrow Road - which also saw the Bluebirds walk away with nothing - Cardiff have returned to their favoured 4-2-3-1 shape, seeing them claim six points from their last two games.


Perry Ng

Starting his career at Crewe Alexandra - a side with which he spent seven year and made over 150 appearances - Ng had just one loan spell at Hyde United in 2015 before making the move to South Wales in 2021.

After being crowned Cardiff's Player of the Year and Players' Player of the Year last season, the defender signed a new three-year deal in August to keep him with the Bluebirds until the summer of 2026.

Rubin Colwill

Coming through the Cardiff City academy, Colwill has spent the entirety of his professional career with the Bluebirds, making his debut for the Club in 2021 - and since going on to represent his country as part of both the Euro 2020 and 2022 FIFA World Cup squads.

Despite a slower start to the campaign, the 21-year-old midfielder has played a part in Cardiff's last 11 games, and will be looking to get his name on the scoresheet if he is named in Wednesday night's starting eleven.

Dimitrios Goutas

Moving to South Wales in July last year, the Greek centre-back has so far played all but 13 minutes of Cardiff's 2023/24 campaign and is expected to remain with the side until the summer of 2025.

Not only contributing defensively, Goutas has also scored four times this season - with the Bluebirds managing to secure a win on each occasion he has found the back of the net.

A first defeat of André Breitenreiter’s tenure

- Cardiff City 1-0 Huddersfield Town
- First half goal from Famara Diedhiou
- Town below par in South Wales

After four points from his opening two games, Town suffered a first defeat under new Head Coach André Breitenreiter in Wednesday night’s game at Cardiff City.

In a game of very few clear chances, a first half goal from former Bristol City striker Famara Diedhiou settled the tie as Town struggled to break down a resilient opposition side.

Breitenreiter made two changes for the game, both of which were forced upon him. Jonathan Hogg’s suspension meant Ben Wiles came into midfield, whilst Michał Helik made his first start since injury at the expense of Saturday’s injury victim Yuta Nakayama.

Town had plenty of the ball throughout the opening 45, partly because Cardiff chose not to engage the Terriers until they entered their defensive half. The Bluebirds compressed the spaces in their half very well, and showed they had a real threat on the break too.

When Town did create openings, they couldn’t hit the target. The first shot of the game fell the way of the men in acid lime as early as the seventh minute when Delano Burgzorg played a low ball into the area from our left to find Danny Ward, but the former Cardiff player volleyed over after spinning quickly towards goal.

At the other end, former Town favourite Karlan Grant had a typical effort to try and get Cardiff off the mark – cutting in from the left flank before letting fly with his right foot. Thankfully Lee Nicholls got down smartly to his right side to push the effort away.

The closest Town came to an opener during the opening 45 came in minute 18, when Burgzorg won a free kick by being bundled over by Perry Ng. Thomas came over to our left to deliver an inswinging delivery and it was only the feintest of touches from centre back Dimitrios Goutas that ensured the ball flew inches wide of the far post.

Town looked to be the most likely side to score at this point, and Thomas soon created another chance. He spotted the run of Brodie Spencer and played an early cross into his path at the back post, but the Northern Ireland international couldn’t beat goalkeeper Ethan Horvath from a narrow angle with his header.

Sadly, Cardiff then took the lead on the half hour mark. A cross-field pass towards our left was touched past Spencer brilliantly by former Blackpool winger Josh Bowler, who then quickly pulled the ball back towards the penalty spot. There striker Famara Diedhiou just beat Helik to the ball and cleverly diverted it past Nicholls’ dive with a single touch.

Unhappy with the first half display, Breitenreiter introduced Jaheim Headley and Alex Matos at half time and switched the shape to a 3-4-2-1 to try and find a way back into the game.

Town started fairly brightly, with Burgzorg having two early shots that were blocked by defender and goalkeeper respectively.

Ten minutes in, a corner looped off Lees and into the path of Jack Rudoni, but his header went way off target as he tried to get around the ball and divert it goalwards.

Sadly that momentum waned as Cardiff slowed the game down, but there were still two big moments that could have turned out differently.

The first came in the 67th minute, when Headley impressively charged straight through the heart of the Cardiff defence to enter the area before going down. His request for a penalty was dismissed quickly by referee Donohue, as were the afters between Jaheim and midfielder Ryan Wintle. A member of Cardiff’s coaching staff was shown a red for his reaction, however.

Our biggest chance of the night came four minutes from time when sub Tom Edwards played Thomas in down the right; his deep cross was headed back across goal by Headley, but somehow Ward couldn’t wrap his foot around the ball to turn it home from close range.
