Cardiff City Preview – Can the Bluebirds bounce back with a home win?

Steve Morison’s Cardiff City have had a mixed bag of results this season. The Bluebirds have won two, drawn one and lost two of their opening five Championship matches. City are in 12th place right now with seven points to their name.

Cardiff were beaten by rivals Bristol City in the Severnside derby last weekend. The Bluebirds were poor at Ashton Gate and deserved to lose, with the Robins netting in both halves in the 2-0 home win. Cardiff will be looking for a far better performance this weekend.

Our betting prediction:
Under 2.5 Goals

(odds taken 1048 GMT, Friday 26 August)

Cardiff have won both of their league fixtures at the Cardiff City Stadium this term, beating Norwich City and Birmingham City by a goal to nil. Can they make home advantage count in this one?

Preston North End Preview – Can the Lilywhites stay unbeaten?

Preston North End have had a strange season so far. Ryan Lowe’s boys are unbeaten and have yet to concede a goal, but four of their opening five in the league have ended in 0-0 draws. Also, they have netted just one Championship goal so far.

North End’s one and only league victory this season came at Luton Town on matchday three, with Brad Potts’ stunner proving to be the only difference between the teams.

Lowe will be over the moon with his defence, but one goal in over 450 minutes of Championship football will be a concern. Still, can they leave Wales with a positive result this weekend?
