Is Leeds vs Cardiff City on TV? How to watch FA Cup replay match, live stream and highlight details, KO time

Everything you need to know ahead of Leeds’ FA Cup replay against Cardiff City

Leeds will be desperate to secure their entry into the fourth round of the FA Cup as they take on Cardiff City once more tonight. The Whites fought back against the Bluebirds last time around, securing a 2-2 draw despite being 2-0 down on the hour mark.

Jesse Marsch’s side were handed the opportunity to make it level after Cardiff’s Joel Bagan was sent off for handball on the line but Jak Alnwick went on to save Rodrigo’s subsequent penalty.

Both teams are currently situated in the bottom halves of their respective leagues and as there are only two points between the bottom seven places in the Premier League, Leeds will be eager to utilise their outing tonight not just as a means of progressing to the next round, but as a morale-booster before for their upcoming fixture against eighth placed Brentford this weekend.

The winner of tonight’s fixture will go on to play either Accrington Stanley or Boreham Wood in next weekend’s fourth round. These two were due to play their FA Cup replay this week but were forced to postpone due to the pitch being frozen.

The match is set to be broadcast on ITV4 later this evening. The BBC and ITV have been sharing the coverage of the FA Cup and BBC showed Liverpool’s 1-0 win over Wolves last night.

The match will also be streamed through ITVX official website and app for those unable to watch on TV.

Team news

The two sides have met on 61 occasions across all competitions and Leeds have won 17 times with Cardiff coming out victorious on 29 occasions. The last time Cardiff lost was in 2016 during a Championship match in which Leeds won 2-0.

Jesse Marsch has confirmed that Liam Cooper is a doubt for the upcoming fixture after he picked up a knee injury during training this week. Adam Forshaw, Crysencio Summerville, Stuart Dallas and Archie Gray all continue to be sidelined as well. However, the Whites have been given a boost as Luis Sinisterra will be available having been out of action since October. Robin Koch, Rasmus Kristensen and Marc Roca may be left out as they all face a ban if they pick up another yellow.

As for the visitors, Cardiff is likely to bring back Bagan into the line-up after he served his suspension at the weekend but is unlikely to receive the warmest welcome from the fans after his controversial display last time out. Cardiff will still be without Mahlon Romeo (hamstring) and Jamilu Collins is set to miss the entire campaign due to an ACL injury.
