What’s the latest team news?
Cardiff will be without the suspended Harry Arter as well as injured duo Kenneth Zohore and Jazz Richards — plus long-term absentees Nathaniel Mendez-Laing and Lee Peltier.
Joe Ralls and Danny Ward could both return from knee problems.
Brighton’s concerns centre around the injured Pascal Gross and Davy Propper, who are both stricken long term. Alireza Jahanbakhsh is out too having picked up a knock this week.
So the Seagulls could welcome back Yves Bissouma and Anthony Knockaert, despite having named an unchanged side for the past three fixtures.
Probable Cardiff XI (4-33):
Etheridge; Manga, Morrison (capt.), Bamba, Bennett; Gunnarsson, Ralls, Camarasa; Decordova-Reid, Murphy, Paterson.
Probable Brighton XI (4-4-1-1):
Ryan; Bruno (capt.), Duffy, Dunk, Bong; Knockaert, Stephens, Kayal , Izquierdo; March; Murray.
What have the managers said?
“He’s underrated, Chris (Hughton). His achievements speak for themselves and sometimes you’ve got to be careful what you wish for.
“Newcastle were in a super position when they got rid of him. He’s bad for us as managers, he’s so nice! He gives us a bad reputation.”
“They’ll have good backing this weekend and it will be another tough game. “Neil’s comments this morning are nice — but it’s also difficult in this profession to be nice all the time because there are always tough decisions that you have to make to have success.
“I have great respect for him and our paths have crossed many times. He continues to do a very good job at Cardiff. I’ll look forward to seeing him whatever the result.”
Chris Hughton: Who are the key men?
The Bluebirds will rely on the pace of Josh Murphy down the left. The former Norwich youngster has been their most impressive attacking performer this season and has two goals already to his name.
In midfield, the craft and guile of Victor Camarasa will again prove pivotal although Warnock has been fielding the Spaniard in a nominal right-wing role.
Brighton, as always, will be heavily reliant on the solid centre-back pairing of Lewis Dunk and Shane Duffy. Their partnership has been of the Premier League’s more impressive pairings in the past season or two.
