Cardiff entertain Sunderland in the Premier League’s early evening kick-off. The managerless Bluebirds make three changes from the side which lost to Southampton at home on Boxing day, with Declan John, Kim Bo-Kyung and Gary Medel coming in for Andrew Taylor, Aaron Gunnarsson and Peter Odemwinge.
The visitors also make three changes from the starting line-up that defeated 10-man Everton on the 26th, with Andrea Dossena, Jozy Altidore and Emmanuele Giaccherini replacing Ondrej Celustka, Steven Fletcher and Jack Colback.
Both clubs are looking to avoid relegation this season and the late kick-off looks set to be a firey, combative affair.
