Cardiff City 0-1 Newcastle United


Recommended Posts

Cardiff striker Jay Bothroyd has declared himself fit for Sunday's match against Newcastle.

 

Bothroyd has recovered after suffering a minor hamstring injury during the defeat against Doncaster before the international break.

 

Newcastle striker Andy Carroll has lost his battle to be fit in time for the trip to Wales.

 

Carroll has missed the last three games with a groin problem and had hoped to return against the Bluebirds.

 

 

 

Head-to-head

 

• Newcastle did the double over Cardiff in the last two seasons they were in the same division - 1981/82 and 1983/84.

 

• The Bluebirds last beat Newcastle in February 1981.

 

Cardiff

 

• Cardiff have 100% record at their new stadium after a 4-0 victory against Scunthorpe and 3-0 win against Bristol City.

 

• Dave Jones' side have won 11 of their last 15 home league games.

 

• If on the field from the outset, Gavin Rae will be making his 100th start for Cardiff.

 

Newcastle

 

• Newcastle are aiming to complete five league wins in a row for the first time since April 2006.

 

• The Magpies' return of 13 points from a first possible 15 is their best start to a league season in 15 years.

 

• If Geremi is named in the 11, it will be the former Chelsea player's 150th start for an English club.

I'm sure they won't play Lovenkrands, certainly not starting anyway as he had no pre-season matches and no competitive matches at all, so even if he's kept himself fit, he's nowhere near match fit. I think he said that himself in an interview and also think Hughton said much the same, so bench at best i think.
