Cardiff City Prediction – Can Cardiff City bounce back?

Cardiff City’s promising 7-match sequence without defeat in the Championship came to an abrupt halt just before the international break as Neil Warnock’s men were beaten 4-2 away from home at Championship leaders, West Brom at The Hawthorns.

This solid set of results included wins against Huddersfield Town, Middlesbrough and QPR while also picking up points in draws with Blackburn Rovers, Fulham, Derby County and Hull City, which in turn has helped Cardiff City into the top half of the Championship and 11th place.

Although they tasted defeat last time out in the second tier in the west midlands, Cardiff return to home turf for this Friday night clash with Sheffield Wednesday knowing that all three points in this encounter would see the Welsh outfit move to within grasp of the play-off pack.

With 4 wins out of their first 5 matches at their Cardiff City Stadium to date, which includes victories over Luton Town, Huddersfield Town, Middlesbrough and QPR, The Bluebirds will fancy their chances of taking something out of this clash.

Sheffield Wednesday Prediction – Can Sheffield Weds break into top six ?

A 1-0 home win against lowly Wigan Athletic just before the international break moved Sheffield Wednesday a step closer to the play-off pack as they occupy 8th place and find themselves just 2 points adrift of 6th placed Bristol City.

Sheffield Wednesday have lost just 1 of their last 5 matches overall in the Championship which was a 1-0 defeat away from home at Hull City, but recent wins against Huddersfield Town, Middlesbrough and the aforementioned result against Wigan Athletic have lifted Gary Monk’s side to within touching distance of the play-off pack.

Although The Owls have lost just once at home so far this season, their results away from home have already included 3 defeats on the road at Millwall, Preston North End and Hull City amidst an overall record on the road of 3-0-3 10/6.

It should be noted that Sheffield Wednesday’s 3 away wins so far this term have been captured against teams sitting in the lower reaches of the Championship; 22nd placed Reading, 21st placed Huddersfield Town and 20th placed Middlesbrough, who have collected just 4 wins between them in a total of 17 home matches to date.
