Cardiff City are back on the road this evening, taking on Huddersfield Town at The John Smith’s Stadium.
Neil Harris’ side have the play-offs in their sight as we head into the final third of the season, with a 1-0 away win at Luton Town on Saturday afternoon keeping things on track from a Bluebirds perspective.
Tonight, though, they face an interesting task in the form of Huddersfield, who have been lifted by a positive win over Queens Park Rangers at the weekend.
Backing things up midweek with two consecutive away games is never easy, but Harris has named an unchanged side despite that.

That means Alex Smithies returns to his former club in goal, with Jazz Richards, Sean Morrison, Curtis Nelson and Joe Bennett in the defence.
Will Vaulks and Marlon Pack hold the midfield, allowing top scorer Lee Tomlin to roam in the No.10 role.
Josh Murphy retains his place in the side on the left of midfield, with Albert Adomah on the opposite flank.
Callum Paterson leads the line.
Here, we assess the reaction of the Cardiff fans to today’s team news….
