Sports Mole previews this Sunday's Championship bout between Wolverhampton Wanderers and Cardiff City.

The top and bottom half of the Championship meet this Sunday as table leaders Cardiff City and relegation battlers Wolverhampton Wanderers go head to head at Molineux.

The home side will try to snatch their first win in six games this weekend in a tough encounter against the Bluebirds, who have a five-point lead at the top of the table.

Wolves have the opportunity to move out of the drop zone depending on the results around them over the course of the weekend, while Cardiff manager Malky Mackay will try to overcome Tuesday's 2-0 defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion.

Stephen Ward is expected to return to manager Dean Saunders's starting lineup after overcoming a virus, while Kevin Doyle could be chosen up front.

Meanwhile, Mackay could shuffle his pack by starting Craig Conway in place of Craig Noone.
