Football: Middlesbrough boss Tony Mowbray hopes to mastermind his third successive win in Cardiff when the two sides meet in tomorrow's Championship clash.
Boro, who lie second in the overall standings, are on a nine-game unbeaten run and meet third-placed Cardiff, who they beat 3-0 in South Wales last season and 3-2 the year before.
Mowbray, who was awarded October’s Championship manager of the month award today believes his side will approach the game with a “feel-good factor” but must be on their guard against Cardiff’s attacking threat.
“We have to have a game plan against Cardiff, be totally concentrated and work as hard as we have been. We take nothing for granted because Cardiff have some extremely good players who can give you problems,” he said.
Josh McEachran (ankle) is doubtful while Jonathan Woodgate faces a late fitness test.
Elsewhere leaders Crystal Palace will look to maintain top spot at home to Derby and Rams manager Nigel Clough is well aware of the threat posed by Palace forward Wilfried Zaha.
“He (Zaha) is lighting up the Championship at the moment,” Clough said.
“He is a major reason why Palace are where they are, top of the league, but not the only reason. His team-mates are doing a good job as well.”
Huddersfield wait on the fitness of striker Jermaine Beckford as they host Brighton while fourth-placed Hull will be looking to put pressure on the top three with a win away at Birmingham.
Elsewhere Bolton host Barnsley, Bristol City entertain Blackpool, Charlton travel to Burnley and Leicester face Ipswich.
Nottingham Forest face visiting Sheffield Wednesday while Watford host Wolves and Blackburn make the trip to Peterborough.
Finally Sunday's match sees Millwall host Leeds, who may soon be under new ownership as GFH Capital move forward with a proposed takeover.
