Play-off chasers Preston North End and Cardiff City lock horns in a huge EFL Championship fixture on Saturday afternoon. Alex Neil’s Preston have been in poor form, while the Bluebirds will be buoyed after their win over Leeds United last time out. This promises to be a Championship cracker at Deepdale.

Preston North End Preview – Can the Lilywhites get their promotion bid back on track?

Alex Neil’s Preston North End are clinging on to the final play-off place in the Championship for dear life. The Lilywhites have picked up just one win from their previous six league games, losing four of those along the way. Since a 2-1 home win over Hull City, Preston have taken just one point from four matches.

After the enforced break, Neil’s troops battled to a draw at Kenilworth Road. Scott Sinclair’s goal put Preston a goal up, but Luton Town equalised with just three minutes left, with Callum McManaman salvaging a point for the strugglers Hatters. At least the draw stopped a run of three successive defeats for the Lilywhites.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

(odds taken 1510 GMT, Thursday 25 June)

For most of the season, Preston had the best home record in the Championship. However, after a poor run, Fulham, Derby County and Leeds United have now picked up more home points. North End have lost two of their last three at Deepdale.

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

Cardiff City secured a 2-0 victory at Oakwell before the season was temporarily suspended in March. Neil Harris’ men picked up from where they left, beating Leeds United 2-0 at the Cardiff City Stadium last Sunday, with Junior Hoilett and Robert Glatzel getting the goals for the Bluebirds.

Cardiff have certainly improved away from home since Harris took over in South Wales. In fact, since a thumping 6-1 defeat to Queens Park Rangers at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium on New Year’s Day, City have only lost one away game in league and cup. The Bluebirds have won three of their past four Championship fixtures on their travels, seeing off Luton, Huddersfield Town and Barnsley.

Cardiff moved level with Preston in the table after their impressive win over high-flying Leeds last time out. They will leapfrog the hosts and move into the top six with another three points on Saturday.


Preston North End vs Cardiff City Betting Advice

These two look very well matched on paper. After 38 games, both sides have picked up 57 points, with Preston’s goal difference being just one better than the Bluebirds. When they met at the Cardiff City Stadium in December, the fixture ended in a goalless draw.


Key Facts – Preston North End vs Cardiff City Betting Tip

  • Preston have taken just four points from the last 18 on offer
  • Cardiff have won three of their previous four away matches in the Championship
  • The Bluebirds have won only one of their past five meetings with Preston


With so much at stake in this one, we could be in for an anxious afternoon in Lancashire. A draw would suit the away team better, and I fancy the Welsh side to leave Deepdale with an important point. Check out the very tempting odds of 7/2 for the draw and both teams to score.
