Albion had recorded three consecutive 1-0 victories over Wolves, Newcastle and Brighton in October before succumbing to a 3-1 defeat to Everton last weekend.
Cardiff meanwhile fell to an inspired Leicester City side to make it five defeats in six games, but the Bluebirds will be hoping to turn their fortunes around starting with a win in Neil Warnock’s 100th game in charge of the club.
Cardiff are without a clean sheet in their last eight Premier League games. They have conceded 22 goals in that period and have lost seven of those encounters.
Brighton have lost just one of their 11 league games against Cardiff, but have won just one of their last 19 Premier League away games?
History both past and present somehow seem to go against both sides, but something has to give. Which way will it go?
Here are the starting XIs from the Cardiff City Stadium.

Player to watch
Harry Arter: The midfielder was the standout performer for Cardiff against a spirited Leicester City side last weekend. He was required for his dogged defensive work, making numerous tackles and interceptions before unusually being substituted with 10 minutes remaining. The clash with Brighton promises to serve up another midfield tussle between the sides and the former Bournemouth man will be key to that.
Brighton to win: 41/20
