Cardiff City vs Wolves LIVE: Josh Murphy and Junior Hoilett start on Friday night



Cardiff City Lock horns with Wolves this evening to rebuild the rivalries between Neil Warnock and Nuno Espirito Santo.

  • This is the first encounter between Cardiff City and Wolves since February 1962, a 3-2 victory over Wolves at Ninian Park.
  • Cardiff did not win consecutive top-flight domestic games in the same season as their last two matches in the 1961-62 campaign.
  • Cardiff and Wolves met on Friday at Cardiff City last season's championship – winning 1-0 for Wolves in April while Bluebirds missed two 90-minute penalties.
  • None of the last eight league matches between Cardiff and Wolves at CCS ended because both sides won four games at that time.
  • Cardiff scored the first goal just one time in the Premier League this season, in the game they still lost (1-4 against Chelsea).
