Cardiff are still searching for their first victory of this new Championship season, while Wolves are looking to get back on track following a morale-damaging 3-2 defeat to Queens Park Rangers.

Russell Slade’s men have opened their campaign with three consecutive draws.

The first one against Fulham saw them salvage a late point thanks to a stunning Craig Noone strike, before an equally impressive 90th-minute effort from Scott Malone did the same at Queens Park Rangers.

Joe Mason’s 5th-minute goal looked like it would be enough for the three points against Blackburn Rovers, but Grant Hanley struck two minutes from time to snatch the victory away from them at Ewood Park.

Wolves also saw an early lead disappear in midweek. They were 2-0 up after 24 minutes against QPR, before Charlie Austin’s strike followed by Matt Phillips’ double completed a wonderful turnaround for the Rs.

Kenny Jackett’s men were very fortunate to pick up a point against Hull City three days earlier, as an error from Allan McGregor allowed James Henry to equalise in the 1-1 draw.

Their season had began with a 2-1 win over Blackburn Rovers, and they will be keen to get back on track against the side they did the double over last year with consecutive 1-0 victories.
