Sports Mole previews Saturday's Championship fixture between Sheffield Wednesday and leaders Cardiff City at Hillsborough.

Championship leaders Cardiff City can put their recent blip behind them on Saturday when they travel to Hillsborough to face Sheffield Wednesday.

The Bluebirds have seen their lead at the top of the table cut to four points in the past few weeks with one win from five games.

Wednesday are sure to have one eye on the relegation zone ahead of the match as two losses from their last three outings have left them four points above the drop zone.

Giles Coke has been ruled out for the home side with a foot injury, but Reda Johnson is pushing for a place in the starting lineup following his return last weekend.

Meanwhile, defensive pair Mark Hudson and Ben Turner are both doubts for Cardiff.
