Two sides relegated from the Premier League last term meet on Friday evening as Cardiff City host Fulham.
Cardiff City have made a steady start to the season, claiming seven points from their first five league games.
On Tuesday they were thrashed 3-0 at home by Luton Town in the Capital One Cup.
Fulham have suffered a disappointing week, losing at home to both Nottingham Forest and Southampton in two competitions.
They do remain in a play-off spot though, having won three of their first five league matches.
Both teams won the home league meetings in the Premier League last season.
Cardiff won 4-2 at home, with Bobby Reid, who has since left for Fulham, scoring for the hosts.
Last five league meetings (Championship unless stated)
Fulham 1 Cardiff City 0 (Premier League) – 27/04/19
Cardiff City 4 Fulham 2 (Premier League) – 20/10/18
Cardiff City 2 Fulham 4 – 26/12/17
Fulham 1 Cardiff City 1 – 09/09/17
Cardiff City 2 Fulham 2 – 25/02/17
Neil Etheridge remains out for Cardiff and is set to miss another month at least.
Cardiff heavily rotated for the cup in mid-week and should revert to a more normal XI here.
Reid is ineligible to face his parent club, meaning Stefan Johansen will likely continue.
Fulham’s front three is arguably the strongest in the division and Alexsandar Mitrovic will lead the line.
Expected starting XI’s
Cardiff City (4-5-1): Smithies; Peltier, Flint, Morrison, Bennett; Murphy, Ralls, Bacuna, Tomlin, Whyte; Glatzel
Fulham (4-3-3): Bettinelli; Sessegnon, Mawson, Ream, Byram; Arter, Johansen, Cairney; Knockaert, Mitrovic, Cavaleiro
Result: Draw (13/8 with Bet Victor)
Correct Score: 1-1 (6/1 with Bet Victor)
Anytime Goalscorer: Aleksandar Mitrovic (6/4 with Bet Victor)
