Against Spurs last weekend, the Welsh side went with a defensive 3-5-2 system but will come out much more attacking when they host bottom side Fulham in an important relegation six pointer. Kenwyne Jones and Frazier Campbell shall lead the line with Zaha and Bellamy on the flanks. Gary Medel will continue sitting in front of the back four and offer them a defensive cushion.
Fulham (4-2-3-1): Stekelenburg, Riether, Heitinga, Hangeland, Richardson, Karagounis, Sidwell, Dejagah, Holtby, Kasami, Bent
The return of Hangeland will be a welcome boost for Felix Magath as he partners John Heitinga in the center of defence. However January signing Kostas Mitroglou is set to miss after sustaining a hamstring injury during the internationals. He will be replaced by Englishman Darren Bent. If Fulham are going to have any chance of staying in the division, a win against the ‘Bluebirds’ will be absolutely vital.

Mitroglou signed to save the season and might not even play against Cardiff. More mistakes from Fulham!

Jordan Mutch scores an absolute beauty to give Cardiff their first away win in the EPL earlier this season.
Both teams will be battling it out hard at the Cardiff City Stadium and it could be that the defenses that comes out on top. We are backing Steven Caulker to keep Fulham at bay and earn himself a cleanie.
