The relegation-threatened outfit secured a crucial 1-0 away victory over Southampton last weekend, and will now be hoping to record back-to-back wins for the first time this season
Cardiff ended a four-match winless run with a 1-0 triumph at St Mary's Stadium last weekend, a result that moved the Welsh side to within three points of safety.

"Results change moods in football. Last weekend did just that," Solskjaer told reporters. "We need to build on the momentum [of] that win. There's a lot of belief that we can get the job done.
Solskjaer knows it will not be easy, though, as Stoke head to Wales in great form. The Potters beat Newcastle 1-0 last week to keep up a great run under Mark Hughes and sit inside the league's top half.
"We play a team that are in top form," he added. "They've won five in seven and are safe this season. They'll play with a freedom and confidence."
Cardiff goalkeeper David Marshall has urged his side to win two league games in a row for the first time this season, with five of their six previous victories followed by a defeat.
"We've not had back-to-back wins all season. That's something we want and need to do to put us in a good position," Marshall said.
"Last weekend was perfect. It gave us belief we perhaps didn't have after [the loss to Crystal Palace]. Back-to-back wins are now the aim. We need to come out of the traps quick but Stoke are in good form and will be tough.
"We needed a perfect weekend last time out and got it. We're more than confident that we can get the job done [and stay up] with four games left."
