Crystal Palace are the visitors to the Cardiff City Stadium this weekend, with the home side looking to build on last week's dramatic draw with West Brom.

The point at The Hawthornes left Cardiff three points away from safety, having played at least a game more than many of their relegation rivals.

One of those rivals are Palace, who have come into form following the appointment of Welsh boss Tony Pulis in November - highlighted by an impressive win against title chasing Chelsea at Selhurt Park last week.
