Cardiff City host Stoke City at the Cardiff City Stadium on Saturday (Watch live on NBCSN, 10 a.m. ET and online via Live Extra) with the Bluebirds aiming to drag themselves out of the relegation zone.
Last weekend’s win at Southampton has given Cardiff boss Ole Gunnar Solksjaer hope of staying up but they need to follow that up by beating the Potters.
Stoke are in sensational form under Mark Hughes, with five wins from their last seven pushing the Potters into the top half of the PL standings. This match will be a psychical battle down in the Welsh capital, as the home fans look to spur their side onto victory as the relegation battle goes down to the wire.
In teams news Cardiff start with the same team that beat Southampton last weekend, while Stoke also remain unchanged from their victory over Newcastle.
Stoke City: Begovic; Cameron, Shawcross, Wilson, Pieters; Arnautovic, Nzonzi, Ireland, Whelan, Odemwingie; Crouch. Subs: Sorensen; Muniesa, Adam, Palacios, Walters, Assaidi, Wilkinson
