Freedman watched from the stands as Bolton were defeated 2-1 at Middlesbrough on Saturday, which has left his side sitting precariously above the drop zone in 18th.
Malky Mackay oversaw another comprehensive Cardiff victory when his side beat Burnley 4-0, but this will be a different test entirely for his charges.
Freedman could well stick with most of his attacking options, although he might be tempted to rejig a leaky defence. Mackay, on the other hand, has no reason to make many changes.
Bolton: Bogdan; Mears, Ream, Warnock, Rickets; Eagles, Petrov, Davies, Spearing, Lee; Davies
Cardiff: Marshall; Taylor, Hudson, Turney, Connolly; Whittingham, Cowie, Kim, Noone; Mason, Helguson
Sports Mole says: 1-1
