Marshall – who joined the Welsh side from Norwich in 2009 – is looking forward to returning to the club he spent two seasons at.
That is mainly due to the importance of the game though, with Cardiff keen to reverse a form slump which has them slide to 17th in the Premier League table.
Norwich are just a point behind them in 18th and Marshall knows matches against fellow strugglers will be vital in Cardiff's survival bid this season.
The Scotland international told WalesOnline: "It's a significant match for me against a club I played for.
"But it's huge for us as a whole. It's important we do well against teams around us."
