Cardiff vs Southampton - Premier League preview and team news


Bookmark and Share

By Stephen Donovan

Thursday 26 December 2013

Malky Mackay has not yet been sacked by Cardiff City, so should be in charge for the game against out-of-form Southampton.



The defeat at Liverpool on Saturday looked set to be Mackay’s final game as Bluebirds boss, with owner Vincent Tan in the stands expected to give the Scot his marching orders in the immediate aftermath. However, Mackay has been spared the sack for now, and he will have been encouraged by the second half performance at Anfield as they battled hard to avoid losing by a heavy scoreline.


Southampton’s defensive standards continue to slip as they conceded three goals in a game for the third time in December as they lost at home to Tottenham on Sunday. The recent run of just one win in eight games has seen them slip to ninth in the Premier League, just four points above the bottom half, so they will be desperate for victory here.


Cardiff forward Craig Bellamy should be fit enough to return after missing the last two games with a knee injury


Mauricio Pochettino’s side are still without goalkeeper Artur Boruc, midfielder Victor Wanyama and winger Guillermo Do Prado, while Nathaniel Clyne is doubtful. One positive is that Luke Shaw should return after illness.
