Cardiff vs Southampton by Sureseye

Cardiff
VS
Southampton
Cardiff knows the importance of steering clear off Southampton in this clash for a confidence boost ahead of their upcoming league engagements with desperate relegation contenders. For that to happen, the attack of Mac kay's men will need be rejuvenated as the side have been found losing staggering chances in front of goal, accounting for their been the league's third least scoring side. However, Cardiff will be relatively pleased with their record at home, with three wins - including victory over Manchester City - and three draws in nine games.

 

In Malky Mackay's words, he said his players have trained as they always do and will remain focused on upcoming clashes irrespective of looming distractions. For this clash, he will have a doubt over Craig Bellamy who has a knee injury which forced him out of the game against former club Liverpool on Saturday. Winger Craig Conway is back from a loan spell with Brighton and could come back into

 

contention.

 

Southampton head into this clash on the back of a 3-2 loss at home welcoming Tottenham. Coach Mauricio Pochettino admits it was a shock for him to bear, having trouble sleeping trying to digest a very tough defeat (against Spurs), but admits to be focus on the upcoming clash as his side has been unfortunate.

 

Luke Shaw, Kelvin Davis, Nathaniel Clyne and Dani Osvaldo are all being monitored ahead of potential returns. Jose Fonte and Maya Yoshida are doubts whilst Guly, Artur Boruc and Victor Wanyama remain on the road to recovery.

 

It is desperate times for both coaches; Cardiff coach Mackay's job is on the line and will seek redemption of his below-par attack line while Coach Mauricio Pochettino will be keen to end his highest streak without a win. The current situation should call for an explosive affair with both sides likely recording in the book.
