CONFIRMED: Cardiff and Norwich line-ups

Here is how Cardiff City and Norwich City will line up for this afternoon’s Championship match:

Cardiff City starting XI: Marshall, Brayford, Fabio, Connolly, Morrison, Ralls, Whittingham, Gunnarsson, Pilkington, Jones, Macheda

Subs: Moore, Cala, Le Fondre, Jones, Daehli, Maynard, Adeyemi

Norwich City starting XI: Ruddy, Martin, Turner Hooiveld, Olsson, Tettey, Johnson, Lafferty, Hoolahan, Redmond, Grabbon

Subs: Rudd, Whittaker, Jerome, Garrido, Josh Murphy, O'Neil, Odjidja

Two of the three sides relegated from the Premier League last season come face to face in the Championship this afternoon, with Cardiff City hosting Norwich City at 3:00pm.

The Bluebirds have a fine recent record against the Canaries, the former unbeaten in their last three home matches between the two sides, with two victories and one draw in that time. The last time Norwich beat Cardiff in Wales was in February 2008.

Both sides have impressive recent records, which suggest something could give this afternoon. Cardiff have lost just one of their seven matches so far this season while the Canaries are unbeaten in their last five games.

The two clubs share the interesting fact that only Wolves have beaten them so far, with the newly-promoted side triumphing 1-0 on both occasions.
