NEWS: Cardiff pair look set to miss Derby County clash.

After an underwhelming start to their season Cardiff fans have been hit with another blow, as duo Anthony Pilkington and Aron Gunnarsson are set to miss tonight’s Sky Bet Championship clash with Derby County.

Pilkington injured his thigh in the 2-0 defeat to Leeds last week, whereas Gunnarsson, who missed the weekends game against Rotherham, has injured his ankle and looks doubtful to feature tonight.

It could have been worse for the Welsh club, as Lee Peltier was substituted late on in the Rotherham win but he has not been ruled out of tonight’s game.

The Blue birds have been fairly lackluster this season, with just 2 wins and 2 draws to their name from their opening 9 matches, and have been underwhelming throughout, and blows like this certainly wont help their chances of finding a run of form.

Derby go in to the game with a similarly poor start to Cardiff, and off the back of an embarrassing performance this weekend which saw them concede 2 goals within three minutes straight after scoring themselves and lose to fellow strugglers Blackburn Rovers.

A clash between 22nd and 23rd in the table isn’t exactly a mouth-watering prospect usually, but this is a case of 2 clubs who are expected to be in and around the play-offs come May, and don’t be surprised if both start to turn their fortunes around fairly quickly.
