It will be a bottom of the table clash, when Cardiff entertain Huddersfield on Saturday in a Premier League game of round 22. The hosts are just outside the drop zone, 2 points above 17th placed Southampton and will be eager to widen the gap. Huddersfield are last in the standings with just 10 points, 8 short of the last place ensuring another season in the top flight. They must start collecting points right away, if they are to avoid the drop, but based on current form it will be considered a wonder, if it is about to happen. Both sides lost their FA cup visits to lower division teams last Monday.
