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.
Possible starting lineups
Cardiff: Marshall, McNaughton, Taylor, Turner, Whittingham, Conway, Connolly, Smith, Gunnarsson, Campbell, Bellamy
Derby: Legzdins; Davies, Keogh, Brayford, Hoganson; Coutts, Hendrick, Bryson, Jacobs; Ward, Sammon
Sports Mole says: 2-0
