Venue: Cardiff City Stadium.
Cardiff City are off to a flying start to the new Championship season and they deservedly hold the very top of the standings after two opening rounds of the competition.
The hosts will come into the game with Sheffield United in high spirits having demolished one of the main contenders for the promotion, Aston Villa, 3-0 on the home patch last weekend.
Neil Warnock has a respectable lineup of strikers in the likes of Kenneth Zohore and Junior Hoilett who were both on target in the mentioned thumping of Aston Villa on Saturday.
Things have been working quite well for the Bluebirds on the other side of the pitch as well since the Welsh side kept their net untouched in both of the initial outings with the likes of Burton Albion and Aston Villa.
Billy Sharp continued his sensational form from the last season when he was the top scorer in League One.
The Blades’ predator bagged the lone goal in the starting win over Brentford, but he failed to find the net last weekend in a narrow 1-0 defeat to Middlesbrough at Riverside Stadium.
