Cardiff City will be looking to get one over arch rivals Swansea City this weekend when they return to action.
The Bluebirds head into the game in impressive form, with four wins in a row. Whilst Swansea are unbeaten in their last two, and picked up a hard-fought point against promotion-chasing rivals AFC Bournemouth in midweek.
Neil Harris’ side have moved into contention for a top-six finish after this strong run of form, and now find themselves sat ninth in the Championship table heading into the clash against the Swans.
One player that they face a nervous wait over is Harry Wilson, with the on-loan Liverpool midfielder picking up an arm injury against Stoke City in their last match.
Speaking in a recent interview (quotes sourced from Dai Sport), Harris issued an update on Wilson’s fitness ahead of the clash with their rivals this weekend.
“It’s not a great injury in his arm and we don’t know the ins and outs of it yet. He’s got a real issue with it.
“We will have to see how he goes and we will give him up to the last minute to recover. But he needs to improve from where he is now to be able to play.”
Robert Glatzel replaced Wilson on the night against Stoke, and wasted no time in making a positive impact, as he equalised for the Bluebirds.
Mark Harris will be hoping that he can retain his place in the starting XI after some strong performances, although you would imagine that the likes of Josh Murphy and Gavin Whyte will be pushing him all the way for a place in the team against the Swans.
A win for Cardiff could see them move to within one point of the play-off places, whereas Swansea could move into the automatic promotion places if they win, and other results go their way.
