Cardiff City News and Form – Bluebirds to stretch undefeated run?

Neil Warnock’s Cardiff City have been very hard to beat in the Championship of late. The Bluebirds are unbeaten in six since crashing to a heavy 3-0 defeat to Reading at the Madejski Stadium in mid-August. However, they did lose by the same scoreline at home to Luton Town in the Carabao Cup since.

Although City have made themselves difficult to beat, four of their last six in the Championship have ended in draws. The Bluebirds have picked up only three league wins this term, seeing off Luton, Huddersfield Town and Middlesbrough, all by a one-goal margin on home turf.

Having lasted just one season in the Premier league following promotion from the Championship at the end of the 2017-18 campaign, the Bluebirds will be eyeing up an instant return to the top flight. In what is supposedly Warnock’s last season in management, Cardiff are currently priced at 8/1 for promotion.

City have not quite hit the peaks of their power so far this season, but they are not an easy nut to crack, with only Wigan Athletic and Reading getting the better of them in the league so far. Will Cardiff claim their fourth Championship victory of the season in midweek?

Queens Park Rangers News and Form – Can the Hoops hit back with a positive result?

On the whole, Queens Park Rangers have had a solid season so far. Rangers have certainly blown hot and cold, though, as the London club have won five, drawn one and lost three of nine league matches.

Ahead of last weekend’s clash with West Bromwich Albion at Loftus Road, the R’s had won four Championship matches in a row. The Hoops beat Wigan, Sheffield Wednesday, Luton and Millwall during that impressive run.

Last time out, though, QPR came up short against Slaven Bilic’s West Brom at Loftus Road. Rangers had the chance to go top, but second-half strikes by Nathan Ferguson and Matheus Pereira gave the Baggies a deserved 2-0 win. That was Rangers’ first league defeat since losing to Cardiff’s rivals Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium on August 21st.

Not many people would have had Queens Park Rangers down as promotion candidates before a ball was kicked. However, in Mark Warburton, the Hoops have a very experienced manager at this level, and the club are currently priced 12/1 for promotion. Can the London side pick up a priceless win in Wales on Wednesday?

Cardiff City v Queens Park Rangers Predictions

Cardiff City win: Warnock’s Bluebirds have not quite got going yet. City had a real go in the Premier League last season, just coming up short in the end. The club definitely have unfinished business with the top flight, and they will be targeting a second promotion in three seasons. As for QPR, they could be dark horses in the race for the top six.

This could be a close one at the Cardiff City Stadium, but we can see the home team sneaking a win, which is available at 11/10. The Bluebirds have won 2-1 on two occasions so far this season, and the hosts are priced at 8/1 to win by that same scoreline on Wednesday evening.
