Cardiff vs Crystal Palace - Premier League preview and team news

Bookmark and Share

After only one win in eight games, third-from-bottom Cardiff City take on Crystal Palace in a hugely important game in the battle for Premier League survival.

Despite their lowly position and poor recent results, Cardiff will be encouraged by some of their performances of late. Scoring goals seems to have become easier, with three in each of their last two Premier League games.

The point they earned right at the death at West Bromwich Albion last time out could be the difference between whether they go down or stay up, but this itself is a game that falls into the must-win category.

Going into their game against then leaders Chelsea, Crystal Palace seemed to have the most difficult run-in out of the teams in the Premier League’s bottom five. However, victory over the Blues thanks to a display full of spirit and determination was a major boost, and despite their meagre tally of just 20 goals all season, it reinforced the brilliance of the job that Tony Pulis has done at Selhurst Park since being appointed manager.

Mark Hudson is still out for Cardiff, who have doubts over right-back Fabio da Silva, who was forced off in the draw at West Brom.

Crystal Palace have almost a fully-fit squad available, with Dwight Gayle the only absentee. Fellow striker Marouane Chamakh returns after injury.
