Cardiff City Preview – Can the Bluebirds extend unbeaten run to three?

Cardiff City have had a pretty miserable season up until now. The Bluebirds made a decent start but have spent the majority of the campaign just above the bottom three. Overall, the Welsh club have won six, drawn five and lost 13. Only Peterborough United and Barnsley have suffered more defeats.

Cardiff are unbeaten in two league and cup games in 2022. After kicking off the year with a hard-fought 1-1 draw with West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns in the league, City sealed an FA Cup win over Preston North End last weekend. Mark Harris’ 116th-minute strike earned a 2-1 extra-time victory at the Cardiff City Stadium.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 0819 GMT, Friday 14 January)

With the club just four points above the drop zone, they could really do with putting a good run together. However, Saturday’s fixture will be a tough one for Morison’s men.

Blackburn Rovers Preview – Will in-form Rovers leave Wales with maximum points?

Tony Mowbray’s Blackburn Rovers have been one of the surprise packages in the Championship this season. The Lancashire outfit have been in devastating form over the past few months, going from mid-table mediocrity to genuine title contenders.

Blackburn head to South Wales having won nine of their last 12 in the Championship. They are unbeaten in the league since losing 7-0 at home to Fulham in early November, going on to win seven and draw two. Before a 0-0 draw with Huddersfield Town on 2nd January, Rovers had won six in a row.

Cardiff City vs Blackburn Rovers Betting Advice

Blackburn wiped the floor with Cardiff when the duo met at Ewood Park back in September. Ben Brereton was on fire in that one, helping himself to a hat-trick in the 5-1 romp – Sam Gallagher and Tyrhys Dolan were also on target.

In the last meeting between the two at the Cardiff City Stadium, Cardiff and Blackburn played out an entertaining 2-2 draw.
