VIDEO: Cardiff players joke around ahead of Leeds match

Members of the Cardiff City side appear to be in great spirits ahead of the game against Leeds United.

Cardiff City stars Federico Macheda and Bruno Manga appear to be in good spirits ahead of the Championship clash against Leeds United.

Manga got into the Halloween spirit as he snuck up on the Italian striker wearing a horrific mask, which gave Macheda a fright.

The spirits are good as the Cardiff pair enjoyed a laugh, which shows a lack of stress and pressure ahead of a very important game for the Welsh team this afternoon.

Cardiff started well under the managerial reign of Russell Slade but have been challenged in recent times due to disappointing results and performances.

Leeds head into the match this afternoon under Neil Redfearn, who is the last coach to get a win for the first team during his first spell as interim boss.

Cardiff have the home advantage and it’s time for the joking around to stop and the serious focus to go on how to get the better of the Elland Road side this afternoon.
