Sports Mole previews the Championship clash between Cardiff City and Derby County on Tuesday night.

Cardiff City will be looking to extend their lead at the top of the Championship table to eight points with a win over Derby County on Tuesday night.

The league leaders have been in inconsistent form over the past few weeks and will be hoping to get back on track after their disappointing 2-1 defeat to Middlesbrough.

Their opponents Derby are without a win in the past six games following the 1-0 defeat to Crystal Palace.

A win for Nigel Clough's men at the Cardiff City Stadium could result in a late playoff push, with the Rams currently 11 points off the top six.
