Cardiff City host Burnley as they try to get back to the top of the Championship.

High-flying Cardiff City meet mid-table Burnley in Saturday's Championship clash at the Cardiff City Stadium.

Cardiff have won four of their last five league games and recovered from defeat at Nottingham Forest to scrape past Watford 2-1 on Tuesday night.

Burnley have hit a run of form after a slow start and have won their last two, most recently a 4-3 thriller at Bristol City.

Malky Mackay might be tempted to start Aaron Gunnarsson, who nodded the winner against Watford, with Heidar Helguson set to continue to lead the line.

Martin Paterson and the prolific Charlie Austin should remain as Eddie Howe's strike force, even away to second-placed Cardiff.
