Cardiff City head to West Yorkshire this afternoon to take on Leeds United in the Sky Bet Championship, with Neil Harris’ side looking to bounce back after a midweek defeat to Brentford.
Harris has overseen an upturn in results since taking over from Neil Warnock in Cardiff, but today the Bluebirds perhaps face their toughest test of the season, with Leeds unbeaten in 10 and on a seven game winning streak.
And, as his Cardiff side look to end that run, Harris has made three changes to the starting XI.

Sean Morrison returns to the defensive unit to captain Cardiff this afternoon, with the Bluebirds skipper linking up with Aden Flint in the heart of defence and replacing Curtis Nelson.
In addition to that, Will Vaulks and Joe Ralls come into the side, replacing Leandro Bacuna and Junior Hoilett.
Bacuna features on the bench, but Hoilett misses out completely.
Here, we take a look at the reaction to that team news…
ANNOUNCE WARD LIMBS

Good reshuffle. Nice to see Vaulks get a start

He's dropped the wrong central defender!

Poor Nelson, other than that I rate it

Because Morrison and Flint worked so well before, Nelson robbed 🙄

Tomlin out wide? Or 4-1-2-1-2 with Mendez Laing up top? .. Strong Bench!! Bluebirds 🙌🏼
— Jordan Marks (@JordanMarkss) December 14, 2019
41212 surely. Middle 3 of Pack Ralls and Vaulks, Tomlin at 10, Mendez and Ward up top. Worked against Charlton in the second half so hopefully it works today
