Following a winning start to the campaign, the Bluebirds will return to PDL football following an impressive away victory against Sheffield Wednesday earlier in the month, with Chanka Zimba scoring in addition to Kieron Evans' brace.

Ahead of the return to PDL action on Tuesday, Lead Coach Steve Morison spoke to cardiffcityfc.co.uk:

"We've had a really good week of training," began Steve. "It was another positive off the back of the Sheffield Wednesday game, seeing Kieron Evans make his first appearances for the First Team. We're looking forward to playing at CCS on Tuesday, for what will be the biggest test of the season so far.

"It will be a tough test against Sheffield United, and with the match being played at CCS it's certainly added to the excitement.

"The players are looking forward to it; everyone enjoys playing there and they of course want to be there week in, week out with the First Team, so it gives them a taster of those surroundings should they get the call in the future."
