Picking the Best Potential Cardiff City Lineup to Face Leicester City on Saturday

Cardiff City travel to Leicester City on Saturday afternoon, as they look to return to winning ways.


The Bluebirds played a stalemate 0-0 draw against Crystal Palace on Boxing Day, following their humiliating 5-1 defeat to Manchester United the previous week.


Neil Warnock has no fresh injury concerns for the trip to the Midlands, with long term absentees Danny Ward and Jazz Richards still unavailable.


Here's a look at the best potential Cardiff City lineup for the Premier League game against   Leicester City. 

1. Goalkeeper and Defenders

Neil Etheridge (GK) – Cardiff's number one has played every minute of every league game this season, and is certain to start on Saturday. His clean sheet against Crystal Palace was his fourth of the season, after conceding eight goals in his last two appearances.


Lee Peltier (RWB) -  Peltier will once again make up the back five, which will likely to identical to the one that delivered a clean sheet on Boxing Day. Peltier has only played six times this season, but has been impressive recently as he fills in on the right side of defence.


Sol Bamba (CB) – At 33 years old, Bamba remains as solid as ever for Cardiff. He has two goals and an assist from centre back, and will likely sit on the left hand side of the defence on Saturday.


Sean Morrison (CB) –  Morrison will sit at the heart of Warnock's five man defence, where he has played 19 times. Despite playing at centre back, he remarkably has the most assists in the Cardiff team with three assists to his name.


Bruno Ecuele Manga (CB) – Ecuele Manga will make up the centre back partnership on Saturday, as he makes his 21st appearance of the season. He has one goal and one assist for the Bluebirds, and looks likely to start against Leicester.


Joe Bennett (LWB) –  Bennett has played 13 times this season, and looks likely to retain his starting spot for the trip to Leicester. He has surprisingly notched just one sole assist this season, but he remains defensively solid at the back.

2. Midfielders

Kadeem Harris (RM) -  After not featuring in Cardiff's opening seven league games, Harris burst into the squad in October. He has made just ten appearances this season, but has been a solid player on the wing and will aim to get back to back starts for the first time this season.


Joe Ralls (CM) – The 25-year-old Englishman looks certain to start at King Power Stadium, though his perfomances at times haven't always been great. Nevertheless Ralls remains in favour, as shown by his 15 games this season.


Victor Camarasa (CM) – Alongside Ralls on Saturday will be Camarasa, who is on loan from Real Betis. He has been great this season, with two goals and two assists in 19 appearances a great showing for the 19-year-old Spaniard.


Junior Hoilett (LM) –  Hoilett has been brilliant at left wing for Cardiff, scoring twice in 16 appearances this campaign. Although he hasn't scored since his wonder strike against Wolves in November, he remains a regular in Neil Warnock's side as he continues to perform.

3. Forward

Bobby Reid (ST) - Bluebirds forward Bobby Reid looks likely to lead the line again for Neil Warnock's side, where he will make his 15th appearance of the season.
