Huddersfield Town make the midweek trip to the Welsh Capital for a Sky Bet Championship game against Cardiff City on Wednesday 21 August 2019; 7.45pm kick-off.
Mark Hudson takes charge of the Terriers after Jan Siewert’s contract with the Club was terminated following Friday night’s defeat to Fulham at the John Smith’s Stadium.
The Bluebirds are one of the fellow sides relegated from the Premier League last season, starting their campaign with a defeat to Wigan Athletic followed by a late win over Luton Town.
Neil Warnock’s side suffered defeat in their most recent outing with a brace from George Pușcaș and a late strike from John Swift securing a 3-0 win for Reading on Sunday afternoon.
This season is Neil Warnock’s fourth in the hot seat at the Cardiff City Stadium and third in the Sky Bet Championship.
Warnock, who managed Huddersfield Town between 1993 and 1995, will be hoping his side can earn an instant return back to the Premier League at the first time of asking.
Last season, the Bluebirds finished 18th in the Premier League and were relegated from the top tier of English football alongside Town, having picked up 34 points from their 38 games.
Now back in the Sky Bet Championship, the Club added the likes of Aden Flint from Middlesbrough, Curtis Nelson from Oxford United and Joe Day from Newport County to their ranks.
Warnock has also added attacking firepower with the additions of Marlon Pack and Isaac Vassell from fellow Championship rivals Bristol City and Birmingham City respectively.
Robert Glatzel also arrived in the summer putting pen-to-paper on a three-year deal having scored 17 goals in 29 appearances for German-club 1. FC Heidenheim last season.
