Cardiff haven’t had the best of runs under new manager Neil Harris but will be hoping to take some confidence from Sunday’s draw with Swansea into their next few matches.
They have looked lacklustre, and in all truth it doesn’t look like too much has differed from when Neil Warnock was in charge of the club.
The attacking threat in the side has been very poor and there has been hardly any chances for the strikers over the last few games. Harris and his side were also embarrassed in the league when they were thrashed 6-1 by QPR.
One player that Harris is reportedly looking to bring in to try and change their fortunes is Lee Gregory.
The pair enjoyed a lot of success together at Millwall, as Gregory was often a constant in Harris’ successful Lions sides. The forward has had a tough time at Stoke so far this season, and it looks as though a reunion may well be on the cards in the coming weeks.
So far in this current campaign, Gregory has scored just four goals and hasn’t had the best impact on games. This is down to a number of factors including the poor service that he’s been given by his fellow team-mates.
He’s won just over 30% of his offensive duels, which even for a small player in terms of height isn’t good enough and has to be improved upon. Harris would surely be looking to play him in a front two and hope that he could form a link-up with one of his forwards and start hitting the back of the net.

He’s made just nine progressive runs all season, and doesn’t look to be enjoying his football up in Stoke. At 31-years-old, he’s still got more to give to the Championship and Harris knows that if he’s given a chance in front of goal he will take it.
Gregory could well have a decision to make, and if he does decide to move then it would be a transfer that would seriously be an attempt at getting his career back on track and finding the form he once had at Millwall.
