Cardiff City

The likely Cardiff XI Harris is set to field v Brentford this weekend

Cardiff City take on Brentford tomorrow afternoon at The Cardiff City Stadium in what will be a tough test for the Bluebirds.

Brentford are one of the best attacking teams in the Championship and manager Neil Harris will be assessing which players would be best to limit the chances that their visitors have.

Cardiff harbour hopes of a spot in the play-offs themselves but are currently six points adrift of the top six with a bit of catching up to do.

Here is what Harris is likely to go with as the Cardiff XI against Brentford this weekend…

Harris is only expected to make one change from the team that lost 1-0 against Nottingham Forest on Tuesday night.

Alex Smithies starts in goal as he looks to continue his good run of form with three clean sheets in the last nine games.

Joe Bennett will continue his run at left-back while January signing Dion Sanderson will look to add energy and pace from right-back.

Curtis Nelson and captain Sean Morrison will continue their strong partnership as the two centre-backs.

Is Kevin McNaughton still playing?

Marlon Pack starts as the defensive midfielder with his physicality and reading of the game being used to give the defence some protection. Summer signing Will Vaulks starts alongside him as the ball-playing midfielder with his vision and creativity the most likely thing to unlock the Brentford defence.

Josh Murphy and Junior Hoilett start as the wingers despite Murphy being booed off against Nottingham Forest on Tuesday.

Joe Ralls will start for the first time since breaking his hand in December as he looks to make the attacking midfield role his own following Lee Tomlin’s injury.

Callum Paterson is moved back up front to provide a more defensive approach to the attack as he will press the defenders when they are in possession of the ball.
