Cardiff City headed back from the south coast without any points after losing 2-0 at Bournemouth, although Neil Warnock claimed not to be too concerned after the Bluebirds returned to the top flight.

The Welsh side now play their first Premier League home match against Newcastle and it’s not a bad fixture for Cardiff to have considering that the Magpies aren’t much stronger than last season.

The Tyneside club finished tenth last season although the continuing wrangle between Rafael Benitez and Mike Ashley lends an uneasy element to life at St James’ Park.

Newcastle played fairly well when losing 2-1 at home to Tottenham last weekend, with Salomon Rondon likely to be up to speed for this encounter, while Matt Ritchie and Jonjo Shelvey are good operators in the midfield department.

That said, Newcastle are only into their second season in the top flight and they will have to battle hard against a Cardiff side who rolled up their sleeves to land second in the Championship last term against the odds.

Warnock is a wizard when it comes to getting teams promoted and will now relish sending out a team to battle against the big boys, although it might be that the teams leave the battlefield with honours all square.
