Cardiff City

The fourth round of the FA Cup awaits the winner of Leeds United and managerless Cardiff City’s replay on Wednesday at Elland Road.

The Whites came back from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 with their Championship counterparts two weekends ago, and a meeting with Boreham Wood or Accrington Stanley awaits the victors.

Leeds United was staring down the barrel of defeat with only minutes remaining at Cardiff City Stadium. Still, inspired substitutions from Jesse Marsch gave the Whites a fighting chance in their FA Cup opener.

Rodrigo pulled a goal back for Leeds in the 65th minute, and Sonny Perkins leveled the game just seconds before full-time to add another match to an already hectic winter calendar.

Leeds’ faithful would welcome a cup run, but with only two points separating them from the relegation zone, Marsch has other priorities on his mind. Namely, avoiding relegation from the Premier League after falling to defeat at home against Aston Villa on Friday night.

When Joel Bagan was sent off in Cardiff’s draw with Leeds, his team was already down to 10 men after the dismissal of Lee Peltier.

The draw was the latest in a long line of disappointing results for Cardiff, who also drew with Wigan Athletic on Saturday.

The result seems to have sealed the fate of manager Mark Hudson. His replacement will aim to claim victories over struggling opponents like Leeds and Sunderland, two teams that were defeated by Cardiff earlier this month.

Leeds United Team News

Leeds boss Thomas Marsch will be without a quintet of players for this clash with Aston Villa, as long-term absentees Archie Gray and Stuart Dallas are still out of contention.

The replay is also expected to come too soon for Luis Sinisterra and Crysencio Summerville to return from their ankle injuries. At the same time, Adam Forshaw remains sidelined with a groin issue but is expected to return to training shortly.

Cardiff City Team News

Bagan served his suspension in the draw with Wigan and will be available here, but Romeo, who also suffered an injury at the weekend, and Collins are sidelined.

Bagan may be fighting an uphill battle to get back into the starting lineup following O’Dowda’s goal at the weekend, as Hudson made three half-time changes (substituting Simpson, Ralls, and Harris).
