Cardiff v Leicester. Match preview

This time it's for points. Cardiff and Leicester meet against at Cardiff City Stadium just 5 days after their last encounter. Cardiff came away with a place in Round 4 of the Carling Cup after a 7 - 6 penalties victory last Wednesday night (right). Both teams will make plenty of changes for today's match with Malky Mackay forced to making a change from his Championship side after Andrew Taylor's hamstring injury. City could bring in Lee Naylor in a straight swap or play Kevin McNaughton left and use Blake or Quinn at right back. Will Mackay use the 4 - 2 - 3 - 1 formation that make Blackpool look a very average side last weekend or will he rever to two strikers? If he does will Gestede get a start after his cracking goal in midweek? All these questions will be answered when the teamsheets are revealed. Today's game is live on Sky Sports 1 and in HD. Kick off isa at 1:15pm. There is live commentary on Radio 5 Live. Those of you with Sky TV but not the Sports package can watch all Sky Sports channels for free this weekend so head over to Channel 401 on the Sky platform if you are not able to get to CCS. Sven-Goran Eriksson, meanwhile, is also expected to make wholesale changes to his Leicester side. The City manager swapped 10 players in the Carling Cup third round in south Wales on Wednesday night. Captain Matt Mills was the only survivor from the league victory over Brighton last Saturday. The centre-half was substituted at half-time, but Eriksson insisted it was just a precaution. "He has had some groin problems but they are not serious and he will be ready for Sunday," said the Swede. Kasper Schmeichel, Lee Peltier, Sol Bamba, Paul Konchesky, Yuki Abe, Gelson Fernandes, Richie Wellens, Andy King, Darius Vassell and Jermaine Beckford dropped out of the team in midweek but the majority, if not all, are expected to be recalled. There will Twitter and Facebook updates during the game and reaction afterwards on this website and messageboard.
