Cardiff V Burton Albion - view commentary, squad, and statistics of the game live.


Allan McGregor takes the gloves at Cardiff

Scotland goalkeeper Allan McGregor will make his Cardiff debut at home to Burton in the Sky Bet Championship.

McGregor has joined on loan from Hull for the rest of the season and Bluebirds boss Neil Warnock has confirmed that the 34-year-old is his number one.

Apart from McGregor replacing Brian Murphy, Warnock is expected to name the same side which recovered to beat Bristol City 3-2 in such thrilling fashion last weekend.

Kenneth Zohore will lead the attack, with the out-of-favour Rickie Lambert among the substitutes.

Jackson Irvine remains an injury doubt for Burton after sitting out last weekend's home loss to Wigan.

The Australia midfielder continues to nurse a groin injury after being rested for the same issue for the FA Cup defeat at Watford.

Irvine has yet to train this week and a decision on his involvement will be taken on Friday before the team travel to south Wales.

Goalkeeper Jon McLaughlin is expected to be fit after coming off at half-time against Wigan following an aerial clash with Jake Buxton but on-loan Tottenham midfielder Will Miller will not recover from a hamstring problem.
