Match Preview: Cardiff City vs. Hull City

The Bluebirds are back at CCS on Saturday evening…

15 December 2017

Cardiff City vs. Hull City - Saturday, 16th December 2017 (5:30pm KO @ CCS)

Cardiff City return to the Welsh capital following their determined fightback against Reading on Monday evening.

Hull travel to South Wales for Nigel Adkins’ first away trip as manager. The Tigers picked up three points in his first match, a 3-2 victory over Brentford on Saturday.

Tickets are still available...

What to expect from the Tigers…

Hull are six points above the relegation places, having registered five wins so far this season. Their 22-point total thus far sees them have exactly half of the Bluebirds’ points tally as we approach the half way stage of the Sky Bet Championship campaign.

Despite having only won on five occasions, a number of those have been highly impressive. In their victories over Burton Albion, Birmingham and Bolton, the Tigers scored a combined 14 goals – and have only failed to score on two occasions in the league this season.

Former Bluebird Fraizer Campbell has been one of the Tigers most consistent players since he re-joined in the summer. The 30 year-old has five goals to his name in the 17 fixtures he had appeared in this season, including vital strikes against Reading and Barnsley.

Jarrod Bowen has been the standout name for his Club so far. Despite being a bit part player in previous seasons, the former Hereford man has missed just one fixture to date this term due to injury – and could miss this weekend’s contest with ankle and knee problems. He currently sits top of the goal scoring charts at the KCOM Stadium, with 10 goals.

In the hot seat…

Having recently been appointed as Hull boss, Nigel Adkins has now taken the reigns of his fifth EFL club. Starting his managerial career in Wales, the 52 year-old took over at Bangor City as a player-manager from 1993-1996.

He then spent time at Scunthorpe United, Southampton, Reading and Sheffield United before taking over with the Tigers.

Adkins has enjoyed a number of memorable moments in his managerial career thus far, guiding Southampton to the Premier League from League One in three seasons, as well as winning the Welsh title in consecutive years during the mid-nineties.

Previous meetings…

City’s last victory over Saturday’s opponents came back in 2012 as goals from Mark Hudson and Heiðar Helguson secured the three points in a 2-1 win at Cardiff City Stadium.

The Bluebirds also scored a brilliant team goal when the two teams met at the KCOM Stadium in the Premier League. A whipped cross into the box from Don Cowie saw Peter Whittingham smash a volley past Eldin Jakupovic to draw 1-1 in 2013.

Tickets are still available...

Club connections…

The Bluebirds and the Tigers have shared a number of goalkeepers between them, with David Marshall, Allan McGregor and Ben Amos all sporting the jerseys for both teams.

Marshy joined Hull City in the summer of 2016 after making 264 appearances as a Bluebird while McGregor spent the second half of the 2016/17 season at Cardiff City Stadium on loan.

Other players to play for both clubs include the aforementioned Campbell - who is now in his second spell with the club – and Lee Peltier, making seven loan appearances in 2007.

Match Report: Cardiff City 1-0 Hull City

16 December 2017

The Bluebirds maintain their unbeaten home league record...

Cardiff City defeated Hull City 1-0 in the Welsh capital to ensure a place in the top two for Christmas.

Neil Warnock made three changes from Monday’s draw away to Reading. Anthony Pilkington made his first Championship start of the season, while Lee Peltier and Lee Tomlin came into the starting eleven.

City's first opportunity popped-up after 10 minutes, when Nathaniel Mendez-Laing sped down the right wing before delivering a cross that was cleared as far as the edge of the area. Loïc Damour picked up the loose ball before striking just over the crossbar. The away side came close to breaking the deadlock with their first real chance of the match after 25 minutes, when Nouha Dicko turned on the by-line to fire an effort off the base of the post.

The home side found the back of the net after 39 minutes, courtesy of Joe Bennett however it was disallowed for offside. The Bluebirds continued their pressure going into the break, with Lee Tomlin twice denied by former Cardiff City loanee Allan McGregor.

Immediately after the interval, the Bluebirds came ever-so close when Ralls’ free-kick was headed to the back post by Sol Bamba, where Hoilett leapt to head the ball agonisingly wide of the left post.

The Bluebirds were rewarded for their continuous pressure after 59 minutes. Tomlin's excellent cross was flicked on by Pilkington with captain-for-the-day Bamba rising superbly to head beyond McGregor and give his side the lead.

Tomlin looked determined to double City’s advantage as he blasted an effort on target after 68 minutes. McGregor fumbled the ball, but quickly recovered to gather before Pilkington could reach it.

As the tense game came into the final 12 minutes, Hull tried their best to find an equaliser. Larsson firing over from distance before Ondrej Mazuch found himself with the ball in front of goal but he tapped it into Neil Etheridge’s arms.

The Bluebirds remained resilient and after the four minutes of added time, the referee blew his whistle as City stretched their unbeaten home league record to eleven games.


Cardiff City: Etheridge, Peltier (Paterson 81’), Bennett, Ecuele Manga, Tomlin (Halford 83’), Ralls, Pilkington (Bogle 68’), Bamba, Mendez-Laing, Damour, Hoilett. Subs Not Used: Murphy, Feeney, Connolly, Healey.

Hull City: McGregor, Mazuch, Irvine, Hector, Grosicki, Dicko (Diomande 67’), Toral (Bowen 64’), Larsson, Dawson, Tomori, Aina. Subs Not Used: Marshall, Luer, Clark, Olley, Clackstone.
