Defeat for both sides last weekend (Cardiff lost 2-0 to Bournemouth & Newcastle lost 2-1 to Tottenham Hotspur) has meant that both teams have started life on the back foot in the new campaign, but Warnock will be hoping the negativity surrounding the Magpies and its owner could aid the Bluebirds chances of picking up their first points of the season, after gaining promotion from the Championship last season.
Today's Early English Premier League kick-off will see old rivals Neil Warnock and Rafa Benitez renewing their rivalry, as both managers seek to secure their first point of the season, following defeats in the opening round.
During the two most recent relegated seasons for Newcastle United, they've fared well against Cardiff.
Kenedy had an effort saved by Etheridge but Cardiff soon threatened again when Sol Bamba's header from a corner was scrambled clear.
Cardiff have lost 10 straight league games against Newcastle, the run is each team's record run of victories/defeats against a single opponent. They also carry the longest winning streak at seven.
Looking back on that sour relegation, Warnock said, "I was disappointed in Benitez, I'll never forgive Benitez for playing what wasn't even a reserve team".
Both wingers, the 23-year-olds came through the academy system at Norwich City before Jacob moved to Tyneside and Josh moved across the border to Cardiff. The Clarets have won 75% of their past Premier League outings against Watford (W3 L1), while the Hornets have not won a Premier League road fixture since November 2017 (D1 L11).
"If you look at their squad and their players, they've improved from last year and they finished 10th last year".
The results showed that you are extremely confident that Rafael Benitez will get the better of Neil Warnock with 67% voting for the Newcastle to win option.
The opening weekend of the Premier League is in the books and now attentions can turn to this Saturday's games.
