Cardiff boss Malky Mackay has lauded Iain Moody as he prepares to face his former head of recruitment at Crystal Palace.
Moody is now sporting director at Palace, having left his role as Cardiff's head of recruitment in October under controversial circumstances.
Mackay said: "Iain is a good man and over a period of time will bring a structure to a recruitment department and a common sense approach.
"He ran the recruitment department of the football club here and ran it very well. He spoke to agents and football clubs about players and contracts and had scouts working for him which all filtered into him and then filtered into me.
"It was a good structure and I am sure that is what he will do there."
