    • And we're off here at the Cardiff City Stadium. Kenny Miller kicks off to get us underway.
    • 12.25 Cardiff will have to beware of Henderson off the bench. He has scored eighteen goals so far this season. But Millwall have conceded fifty four goals this season. Milwall come onto the pitch in their change strip of white shirts and blue shorts. The referee is Tony Biggs, who refereed the Johnstone Paints Trophy final last weekend.
    • 12.20 Last time out, the match ended 0-0 at The Den. Cardiff had the best of the early chances but Millwall midfielder James Henry saw his shot come back off the woodwork in the first half and top scorer Darius Henderson nearly won the game for the home side with a late header.
    • 12.15 Malky Mackay: "I don’t expect anything other than a tough game against Millwall. They are a team who have done very well under Kenny Jackett – he’s stabilised that football club and I’ve never had an easy game against him. Millwall win games away from home so it’s a game we’re approaching in the correct manner."
    • 12.10 TEAMS: Cardiff City: Marshall, McNaughton, Hudson, Turner, Taylor, Whittingham, Lawrence, Gunnarsson, McPhail, Mason, Miller. Subs: Heaton, Earnshaw, Conway, Gestede, Blake /// Millwall: Taylor, Craig, Robinson, Smith, Lowry, Henry, Feeney, Abdou, Kane, Wright, Keogh. Subs: Forde, Dunne, Henderson, Bouazza, Ward.
    • 12.05 The Cardiff City v Millwall clash is of importance to both sides today with just seven matches remaining. Cardiff are still pushing for a play-off place while Millwall are in search of points to drag them further clear of the drop zone.
