Cardiff City Preview – Bluebirds to make it five wins on the bounce?

Before Mick McCarthy arrived at the Cardiff City Stadium, Cardiff City had lost five Championship matches in a row and had taken just three points from a possible 21. However, the Bluebirds have really turned a corner under new management, drawing two and winning four of six.

Cardiff started life under McCarthy with back-to-back draws with Barnsley and Millwall, coming from behind in both. Since then, the club from the Welsh capital have picked up consecutive Championship victories over Bristol City, Rotherham United, Coventry City and Luton Town.

Our betting prediction:
Cardiff to win to nil

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 0923 GMT, Friday 19 February)

Cardiff’s incredible form has lifted them from 16th to seventh in no time. With play-off rivals Brentford to come in their next Championship game, the Bluebirds would love maximum points from this one. The bookies have the home win available at 10/11.

Preston North End Preview – Neil’s boys to fall to a fourth defeat in five?

Alex Neil’s Preston North End have had a topsy-turvy kind of season so far. After 30 games played, the Lilywhites have won 12, drawn three and suffered 15 defeats. No team have drawn fewer games, while only bottom club Wycombe Wanderers have lost more.

Preston have been in poor form lately, as Tuesday’s 1-0 home loss to Watford was North End’s sixth defeat in nine league and cup matches. However, in their last away game, Neil’s troops did pick up a precious 2-1 win at Lancashire neighbours Blackburn Rovers.
