Opposition Focus | Season so far
Peterborough United are 22nd in the Championship after 27 games. They've won five matches this season, drawn five and lost 17.
They're just two points from safety though - with a Wednesday's game against City their game in hand on Reading in 21st place.
Darren Ferguson is in his third spell as Peterborough United boss. He first took the team between 2007-09, before departing for Preston North End. He returned in 2011 for four years. He then spent three years at Doncaster Rovers, before returning to London Road in 2019. Ferguson has won promotion on three occasions with Posh, twice from League One and once from League Two.
Opposition Focus: Ones to watch
In January, Posh lost key forward Siriki Dembele, who joined AFC Bournemouth on a permanent deal.
Jonson Clarke-Harris has scored the same amount of league goals as Dembele this season, five, from 17 starts and six sub appearances. The powerful striker scored 33 goals last season in League One to fire Posh to promotion - and will be a key player for them if they're to escape the drop this time around. Clarke-Harris put in a fine performance when the Bluebirds visited London Road in August.
Midfielder Oliver Norburn has started the most league fixtures for Peterborough this season. There was a lot of talk about Norburn moving on in January, but he remained a Posh player and was involved in their 2-0 Emirates FA Cup win on the weekend.
In January, they brought in wing-backs Bali Mumba and Hayden Coulson on loan from Norwich City and Middlesbrough, respectively.
Morison pre-Peterborough | We want to continue this positive run
City boss Steve Morison spoke to the press on Tuesday morning, looking ahead to Peterborough's visit to Cardiff City Stadium.
"They're going to come out swinging. They want to catch us. They had a great result in the FA Cup against QPR and drew Man City in the Cup.
"They're going to be fighting for their lives. We just need to be ready.
"We know what we're going to do and hopefully we carry out our game plan better than they carry out theirs."
