Cardiff City Preview – Bluebirds to stretch unbeaten run?

Mick McCarthy’s Cardiff City have made a good start to their Championship campaign. The Welsh outfit are unbeaten in four so far, winning two and drawing two. Since Big Mick took over in South Wales, the Bluebirds have been extremely tough to beat.

Cardiff kicked off their 2021-22 league season with a 1-1 home draw with Barnsley before beating Blackpool on the road. City were 2-0 down at Peterborough United in game three, but two late Aden Flint headers earned them a point. Cardiff then beat Millwall 3-1 in a physical matchup at the Cardiff City Stadium last Saturday.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

(odds taken 0859 GMT, Friday 27 August)

A second-string Cardiff team lost to Premier League Brighton & Hove Albion in the cup in midweek, but City have looked solid in the league up until now. Can they win the Severnside derby in front of their home supporters on Saturday?

Bristol City Preview – Can the Robins cause an upset in Wales?

In 2021, Bristol City have had a pretty torrid time. Since Nigel Pearson inherited the reigns at Ashton Gate, the Robins have picked up just three Championship wins. This term, they have won one, drawn one and lost two of four.

After a superb 3-2 win at Reading, Bristol City were brought back down to earth in their last outing, losing 1-0 at home to Swansea City. They head to South Wales having lost three of their last four league and cup games.
