But it will not be easy for a Newcastle side who have struggled for from so far having won just 2 of their opening 6 games leaving them stuck in 16th place so far this season.
The trouble for Alan Pardew at the moment is finding ways to get some of his main players motivated and living up to their past form.
There are several players coming under scrutiny includes Argentinean defender Fabricio Coloccini who had a poor game in the 3-2 defeat at Everton meanwhile striker Papa Demba Cisse has failed to score in his last 12 games.
Newcastle will be buoyed by the possible return of Jonas Gutierrez who has missed several weeks out with a hamstring injury meanwhile Yohan Cabaye and Loic Remy will also feature having been in good form in the last few games.
Cardiff have enjoyed a steady start to their first Premier League season continuing to pick up points wherever they can which has lifted them to 11th in the table.
Having only picked up 1 win so far at the Cardiff City Stadium, Malky Mackay will be hoping that his side will be able to turn their stadium into bit more of a fortress in the coming games.
After scoring a screamer against Fulham last weekend, Jordon Mutch could make his home debut after having only appeared from the bench so far this season.
One positive bit of news for Malky Mackay’s squad is that he has almost a full squad to choose from with only Andreas Cornelius out with an ankle injury that he picked up in the League Cup back in August.
Cardiff will certainly be hoping that their home advantage will help them get something from Saturday’s game however Newcastle will be hungry for a win and will hope to pick it up from a side that they have done well against in the past.
