Cardiff City v Norwich City - Preview

Kieffer Moore hoping for injury comeback when Cardiff take on Norwich

Cardiff are hoping Kieffer Moore will be involved at home to Sky Bet Championship leaders Norwich.

Wales striker Moore has not featured since suffering a hamstring injury in the 2-0 derby defeat to Swansea on December 12.

Injured duo Greg Cunningham and Sean Morrison are struggling for fitness and might not be risked as the Bluebirds come to terms with Sol Bamba’s cancer diagnosis.

Fellow defender Jordi Osei-Tutu (hamstring) has not played for the first-team since the end of October, but he had 40 minutes for the under-23s in midweek and will be assessed.

Norwich’s Covid-19 issues have increased with Bali Mumba and Xavi Quintilla both testing positive for coronavirus.

Goalkeeper Tim Krul and forward Adam Idah, currently recovering from a knee problem, had previously returned positive tests and miss out, while backroom staff members have also been affected.

Lukas Rupp and Josh Martin (both illness), Christoph Zimmermann and Marco Stiepermann, who has had Epstein Barr virus and will be sidelined for a few weeks, are also absent.

The one bright positive note is that Kieran Dowell could return to the squad after minor ankle surgery.

    Cardiff City 1 - 2 Norwich City - Match Report

    Norwich sitting pretty after win over Cardiff

    Norwich extended their lead at the top of the Championship with a 2-1 victory at 10-man Cardiff.

    Grant Hanley and Todd Cantwell struck inside the opening 22 minutes to dent Cardiff’s hopes of stopping the rot after four successive defeats in all competitions.

    Joe Ralls halved the deficit after 65 minutes but Cardiff were quickly hampered when Marlon Pack, captain in the absence of the injured Sean Morrison, was sent off for a second bookable offence.

    The result will pile more pressure on Cardiff manager Neil Harris, who has come under increasing scrutiny as the Bluebirds have fallen into the bottom half of the Championship.

    Cardiff were boosted before kick-off by the signing of Max Watters, who had scored 16 goals since joining League Two Crawley in October.

    The Bluebirds have been short of goals this season with only 29 in 22 league matches before the Canaries’ visit, but they also had the welcome sight of Wales striker Kieffer Moore on the bench after being out injured for five weeks.

    Cardiff could have been ahead inside 20 seconds but Harry Wilson’s terrible touch denied him a one-on-one opportunity with rookie Norwich goalkeeper Daniel Barden.

    It proved a costly miss as Mario Vrancic, having been denied by an Alex Smithies save, glanced on Emiliano Buendia’s third-minute corner and the unmarked Hanley headed home his first league goal since August 2018.

    Norwich had beaten Cardiff 2-0 at Carrow Road last month and chances kept coming as Vrancic headed over and the classy Cantwell twice curled wide.

    Barden saved from Robert Glatzel at the other end but Norwich doubled their lead as the halfway point of the first half approached.

    Kenny McLean’s defence-splitting pass found Jordan Hugill and, although Smithies blocked well, the ball fell for Cantwell to score against Cardiff for the second time this season.

    Norwich remained in control as McLean headed wide and Buendia fired into the side netting, but there was more urgency from Cardiff after the break.

    Will Vaulks’ volley forced Barden into action and Junior Hoilett’s rising shot cleared the crossbar.

    But Cardiff were almost undone again by a quick free-kick which saw McLean roll the ball into the path of the willing and speedy Max Aarons.

    The right-back’s cross evaded defenders and forwards alike until Vrancic swept it goalwards and Smithies pushed the ball to safety.

    Cardiff had hope when Leandro Bacuna set up Ralls from 12 yards and the midfielder rifled home into the corner of the net for his fourth goal of the season.

    Harris was punching the air at that point, but Pack was sent packing five minutes later after felling Oliver Skipp.

    Smithies stood tall to deny Cantwell and substitute Przemyslaw Placheta late on as Norwich preserved their lead to complete a season’s double over Cardiff.
