Cardiff City travel to Carlisle United tonight in an FA Cup Third Round replay.

Neil Harris side had to come from two goals down to salvage a replay at Brunton Park tonight, with goals from Calum Paterson and Gavin Whyte sparing his blushes.

A 0-0 draw in the Welsh derby followed last Sunday, and tonight Cardiff will make the long-haul trip up to Carlisle, to determine who will progress into the Fourth Round of the FA Cup, where a trip to Reading awaits them.

Cardiff have several first-team players ruled out of tonight’s game; Isaac Vassell, Joe Ralls and Nathaniel Mendez-Laing.

The trio missed the game against Swansea last Sunday and are set to miss tonight’s fixture too.

Mendez-Laing has missed the last three now after coming off in the first-half of Cardiff’s win against Sheffield Wednesday last month with a suspected thigh injury, and looks set to miss the remainder of the season for Cardiff.

Vassell meanwhile has been out of action since August with a thigh problem, but is thought to be closing in on a return to action.

And Ralls is ruled out with a broken hand – the midfielder suffered the unfortunate injury last month, and is expected to miss the rest of January.

Which midfielder played 457 times for Cardiff City between 2007 and 2017, scoring 96?

It’ll be a huge task for Cardiff tonight. Carlisle will be right up for the visit of the Welsh side, and a loss for them would put a lot of eyes on Harris.
