The last time I wrote a match preview the Addicks were chasing a fifth straight win, now they are looking to avoid a third straight defeat, for what would be the second time this season.
The Addicks have the advantage in the meetings between the two sides so it is crucial that this carries on.
The Bluebirds Team News:
Former Addicks striker Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink is doubtful along with Roger Johnson, Stephen McPhail and Paul Parry, who could all miss out.
Robbie Fowler is definitely out injured and Glenn Loovens is suspended.
Player to watch: Kasper Schmeichel
Surprisingly went from number one to number three at Manchester City in no time after a blinding start to the season, but is doing well during a loan period with Cardiff. We would hope he will be a busy man, how he copes with this is he is could be crucial.
The Addicks Team News:
Chris Powell looks set to start game number 250 for the Addicks despite not appearing to be fully fit just yet because Grant Basey is struggling.
Jerome Thomas looks like being kept out due to “injury”.
Player to watch: Zheng Zhi
If he can be at his very best he could prove the difference in this match.
