Cardiff v Wigan. Match preview

Last updated : 14 February 2020 By Michael Morris

Cardiff City will look to extend their unbeaten league run to seven matches when they host struggling Wigan.

Manager Neil Harris kept an unchanged squad for Wednesday's 3-0 win at Huddersfield and may opt to do so again on their return to home soil.


Wigan centre-back Chey Dunkley is suspended after being sent off in Tuesday's 2-2 draw with Middlesbrough.

Full-back Antonee Robinson, who almost joined Italian giants AC Milan in January, is out with a groin problem.

Neil Harris:

'It’s the same Wigan team that won at Leeds last week.

'I went to the game on Tuesday evening to watch them against Middlesbrough and they put in a fine display until the red card.

'They’ve got individual players who can cause you problems, but we focus on ourselves.'
