Cardiff City Preview – Can the Bluebirds get back to winning ways?

Cardiff City kicked off their 2022-23 Championship campaign in the best possible way, beating title favourites Norwich City at the Cardiff City Stadium. Romaine Sawyers netted the only goal of the game on his debut to win the points for the Bluebirds.

Cardiff were looking for two wins out of two last weekend. They started well at Reading, with Callum O’Dowda’s goal giving City a fourth-minute lead. However, Paul Ince’s Royals turned the game on its head and picked up a 2-1 home win.

Our betting prediction:

Steve Morison’s troops will want to strike back with a home victory in the cup in midweek before entertaining Birmingham City at the weekend. The hosts are the favourites in this one.

Portsmouth Preview – Will Pompey upset the Championship club?

Portsmouth have Championship ambitions, but they have started their League Two season by taking just two points from a possible six. Pompey were involved in a six-goal thriller with Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough in game one, leaving the Steel City with a 3-3 draw.

Danny Cowley’s men then failed to get the better of Lincoln City at Fratton Park last weekend. Pompey dominated the game in terms of shots on goal, but the Imps left Hampshire with a goalless draw.
