Cardiff City welcome Preston North End to the Cardiff City Stadium this Saturday in an EFL Championship fixture. With the Bluebirds impressing of late, while the Lilywhites are tough to beat under their new boss, this promises to be an intriguing Championship clash in the Welsh capital. Cardiff have already beaten Preston twice this term – can the South Wales club make it a hat-trick of wins at the weekend? Take a look at the latest odds and top tips.

Cardiff City Preview – Will the Bluebirds make it three wins on the spin?

Steve Morison has done a fine job at Cardiff City since taking over from the sacked Mick McCarthy. Morison’s main goal was to keep the Bluebirds in the Championship, and they moved 18 points clear of the drop zone after last weekend’s results. Suffice to say, Morison has passed with flying colours.

Cardiff have been in excellent form since late January. City head into Saturday’s showdown having won six of their past ten in the Championship. Last time out, the Bluebirds came from behind to win 2-1 at Queens Park Rangers, with youngsters Isaak Davies and Rubin Colwill getting the goals.

Our betting prediction:
Cardiff to win & both teams to score

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 0925 GMT, Friday 11 March)

Cardiff would love to keep their excellent run going with three points on home turf this Saturday. They are the bookies’ favourites to get the win at 11/8.

Preston North End Preview – Can the Lilywhites leave Wales with a positive result?

Since Ryan Lowe arrived at Preston North End, the Lilywhites have been tough to beat. In fact, only Swansea City and Reading have seen them off in Championship action. Overall, Lowe has won six, drawn seven and lost two of 15 league fixtures.

Preston picked up an impressive win over promotion chasers Bournemouth last time out. They went a goal down at Deepdale, but efforts from Cameron Archer and Emil Ris Jakobsen turned things around.

Preston are in 12th position right now, only seven points away from sixth. Can Lowe’s Lilywhites make a late charge towards the play-offs? Three points in Wales will do nicely for North End, and the bookies have them priced at 2/1.


Cardiff City vs Preston North End Betting Advice

These two have already met twice this season, with the Bluebirds winning both games. Back in November in the reverse Championship meeting, goals from Mark McGuinness and James Collins gave the Bluebirds a 2-1 win. The club from the Welsh capital then beat North End 2-1 in Wales in the FA Cup in January, with Mark Harris scoring the winner in extra time.


Key Facts – Cardiff City vs Preston North End Betting Tip

  • Cardiff have won six of their last ten league games
  • Preston have suffered just two league losses under Lowe
  • The Bluebirds have beaten the Lilywhites twice this season


Overall, Lowe has lost just three times as Preston manager, with one of those defeats coming against Cardiff in the cup at the start of the year.

Morison’s men have been strong at home recently, winning four of the last six. We fancy the hosts to edge this one, and there is good value in 11/4 for the home win by one goal. For a repeat 2-1 Cardiff victory, check out the tempting odds of 9/1.
