Cardiff City v Sheffield Wednesday - Preview

Kieffer Moore set for Cardiff debut

Cardiff could hand debuts to Kieffer Moore and Sheyi Ojo in the Sky Bet Championship clash with Sheffield Wednesday.

Striker Moore, a summer signing from Wigan, missed last weekend’s Carabao Cup loss at Northampton as he was on international duty with Wales, while winger Ojo has joined on a season-long loan from Liverpool.

Wales midfielder Will Vaulks and versatile Scotland international Callum Paterson also return to contention after representing their countries, but Northern Ireland midfielder Gavin Whyte faces a fitness test on a hamstring problem.

Lee Tomlin and Joe Ralls have trained this week after being absent for the Cobblers cup tie with injuries. Long-term absentee Isaac Vassell is back running again but will not be considered.

Wednesday, who begin the season on minus 12 points after breaking spending rules, could field recent recruit Elias Kachunga in south Wales.

Forward Kachunga, signed following his release by Huddersfield, was not involved in last weekend’s cup clash at Walsall but has been in full training this week.

Defender Liam Palmer is back in contention after returning from international duty with Scotland, while Owls boss Garry Monk must decide between Cameron Dawson and Joe Wildsmith in goal.

Osaze Urhoghide is close to returning from his injury problem, but fellow defender Chey Dunkley, who suffered a fractured tibia and fibula playing for former club Wigan in February, remains sidelined.

    Josh Windass shines as Sheffield Wednesday win at Cardiff

    Josh Windass scored one and made another for Jordan Rhodes as Sheffield Wednesday started the new Championship season with a 2-0 win at Cardiff.

    Windass opened the scoring early in the first half and Rhodes added a second in the 44th minute as Garry Monk’s men produced a backs-to-the-wall display.

    Wednesday had started the new season on minus 12 points after the club were found to have breached the English Football League’s profitability and sustainability regulations.

    Cardiff had a similarly troubled build-up after they sacked winger Nathaniel Mendez-Laing earlier this week in mysterious circumstances for what the club termed a breach of contract.

    Neil Harris’ Bluebirds paid the price for some sloppy defending and a lack of creativity even though they were more dominant in possession.

    Monk’s side put their points deduction behind them to move ahead in just the fourth minute. Cardiff’s Leandro Bacuna gave away possession in midfield and Wednesday struck.

    Izzy Brown played in Windass and the striker did brilliantly to race in on goal and finish smartly despite the presence of two covering Cardiff defenders.

    Junior Hoilett had a shot blocked at the other end while Liverpool loanee Sheyi Ojo dragged an inviting ball across the six-yard box on his Cardiff debut and Will Vaulks had a shot saved.

    Sean Morrison also headed a corner wide as Cardiff dominated the ball but failed to break down a resolute Wednesday defence.

    Windass came close to a second when he forced Alex Smithies into an acrobatic save, but Wednesday did double their advantage before the break.

    Barry Bannan’s free-kick was flicked on by Windass and strike-partner Rhodes couldn’t miss.

    Kieffer Moore had gone close with the last action of the first half for Cardiff, who had 72 per cent of the possession, but they lacked fluency in midfield and a clear attacking threat.

    Winger Josh Murphy and striker Robert Glatzel were introduced from the bench in the 58th minute and Lee Tomlin soon followed them in entering the fray.

    Monk also replaced both his scorers but Cardiff’s attacking substitutions couldn’t make a difference as Wednesday stayed resolute and organised.

    Away substitute Elias Kachunga had a weak header saved and then saw Morrison block another effort but Wednesday never looked like letting their lead slip.

    Brown, Windass and Bannan all produced stand-out displays as Cardiff’s inability to test away goalkeeper Cameron Dawson came close to painful.

    Harris will know he has work to do as last season’s play-off side are capable of much better than this.
