Sports Mole previews the Premier League match between Cardiff City and Newcastle United.

Cardiff City host Newcastle United on Saturday hoping to build on their victory over Fulham last weekend.

That win took the Bluebirds up to 11th position in the Premier League table, and another three points over Newcastle could see Malky Mackay's side move into a top-eight place.

Mackay could hand a start to midfielder Jordon Mutch, who came off the bench to score the decisive goal at Craven Cottage last Saturday.

Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew will be expecting an improved performance from the Magpies after they were disappointing against Everton on Monday evening.

United were 3-0 behind before the break at Goodison Park, and that could lead to Pardew recalling Yohan Cabaye for the trip to the Cardiff City Stadium.
