Bluebirds travel to The Riverside to face a Middlesbrough side managed by Neil Warnock.
With three wins in six games since Warnock took over Middlesbrough are almost safe, a position they were most certainly not when Jonathan Woodgate was sacked. All of Warnock's wins have come away from home with 'Boro not winning at The Riverside since Boxing Day.
A draw in the Hull v Luton game would mean Middlesbrough were safe however they get on against Cardiff. They need a win to guarantee their own fate, a draw against City would save them if Charlton lose at home to Wigan.
As for Cardiff. A win at Middlesbrough coupled with Millwall and Swansea not winning will ensure a play off place today.
We can't be knocked out of a play off challenge today but we don't want to lose the advantage of being the team in 6th place for the final games on Wednesday.
"We are not getting too far ahead of ourselves. We had a positive against Derby but we need a good result against Boro."
