Last updated : 30 January 2021 By Michael Morris

Championship action at CCS as Millwall are the visitors.



The last six games between the sides have ended in draws.

Mick McCarthy:

"I'm absolutely delighted to be manager of Cardiff City Football Club, with Terry Connor 'TC' alongside me in the dugout. But as much as I'm excited about us playing on home turf for the first time, I'm disappointed that we'll be doing so without the City supporters here with us. Every time I've played in Cardiff it's been in front of a great crowd and I know how much you supporters can make a difference.

"I was very pleased with the spirit we showed at Barnsley, coming back from 2 goals down to earn a hard-fought point. It shows there is plenty of character, aggression and willingess to fight amongst this squad of players."
