City will face Brighton on Tuesday night in the bid of changing their fortunes, and getting their first win in exactly one month. The Bluebirds currently sit 15th in the league table, six places ahead of their visitors in 21st place. The two sides drew 1-1 when they faced each other at the AMEX stadium, both goals coming within two minutes of each other from Bruno and Jones respectively. However Cardiff haven't beaten Brighton at home in the past five encounters, with the last win coming in the 2007 Carling cup.
Cardiff look set to give David Marshall his first start of 2015 after recovering from an ankle problem. Lee Peltier and Scott Malone also look set to play, but will need fitness tests before the match. Brighton will be able to give Dale Stephens his first appearance after being out for ten months with ligament damage. Sam Baldock has also returned from a hamstring problem and Solly March with a calf problem.
My predicted Cardiff line up for this Tuesday night match up is-
01- Marshall
04- Malone
05- Ecule Manga
16- Connolly
36- Morrison
07- Whittingham
11- Noone
17- Gunnarsson
18- Adeyemi
09- Jones
13- Doyle

My predicted score for this game is Cardiff 2-1 Brighton. I think Eoin Doyle's home debut will spur him on to grab two goals, while our leaky defense is almost guaranteed to concede a goal.
