Cardiff City have proven that they have the work ethic and desire to get results from big games at home on multiple occasions this season.

The Bluesbirds defeated Manchester City in Wales and also came from behind twice against Manchester United to secure a stoppage time draw.

Although their results in the last month have been spotty, it looks once again like Malky Mackay has his side back to their best as they prepare for table toppers Arsenal on Saturday.

Mackay is expected to start with close to the same first team that earned their result against Manchester United and will be more than ready for Arsenal and as long as they manager to avoid any early jitters they should be a strong test for Arsenal Wenger.

The Gunners continue to have a group of players absent with both Lukas Podolski and Alex Oslade-Chamberlain two of the long term injury frustrations.

However, Wenger has his side at the top of their game and with Theo Walcott back in the lineup as well the club have an even more deadly attack that is about be unleashed on Cardiff.

Arsenal are undefeated in their last 11 meetings with Cardiff in all competitions and have won six of those matches giving them much confidence heading into their last fixture of November.

Kieran Gibbs could be forced out as he is listed as doubtful for the match with Nacho Monreal the likely second choice if Gibbs cannot make pass a late fitness test.

Cardiff XI: Marshall; Theophile-Catherine, Caulker, Turner, Taylor; Cowie, Mutch, Medel, Whittingham, Odemwingie; Campbell.

Arsenal XI: Szczesny; Sagne, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal; Ramsey, Arteta; Wilshere, Ozil, Cazorla; Giroud.
