Match date: 02/02/2022

Both teams with some activity in the market, Cardiff sold topscorer Moore ( 5g) and key midf. Giles among other, but arrived striker Ikpeazu from Middlesborough.

Also without Moore, Cardiff has sufficient power in attack to defeat poor Barnsley, that continues its bad run at bottom of table with four consecutive defeats and only three draws since early November.

Hosts are in difficult period with rooster, too, among injuries and consequences of Covid as revealed by trainer:

“January has been really tough for us as a football club. We have had an average of 10 to 12 players in training. We started this year by having games postponed – games where we actually had the numbers to play, but our opponents didn’t.

“When we did not have the numbers, we could not postpone because we had more injuries than Covid cases, so we have really struggled this month with having the numbers in training and numbers to play games.

“We have had a few players who have been able to do it and they have put in a lot of sacrifice. A lot of players have played more minutes than they should, coming back from Covid and so on. A lot of young players have had the chance to be in the first team and made their debuts as well, but overall, we have suffered a lot."

For them topscorer Woodrow ( 4g) remain out, Morris ( att.9+1 2g), key def. and assistman Brittain ( 22 3assists), Odour ( def.9+5), Kitching ( def.17), Odour ( def.9+5). Adebojo ( att.6+14 2g), Gomes ( midf.13+6) are all uncertain and trainer not revealed who will be able to return from injury ( except Moore that had covid). Finally, Barnsley left Sibbick ( def.11+1) and on deadline day midf. Bassi ( Metz) and Quina ( Watford) arrived on loan.

Cardiff fith from bottom, one day less of rest respect the opponent, but also if problems in home team seems start to be better remain favourite for this match. Guests without key def. Nelson ( 24)
