Our Prediction:

Cardiff will win

RGC – Cardiff Match Prediction | 14-09-2019 09:30

Departures are what you normally expect to see when a team gets relegated. On the other side, the board worked well to bolster the ranks with Robert Glatzel, Aden Flint and Will Vaulks, among other names. As a result, Cardiff lost no less than 8 first-team regulars during the summer transfer window. The likes of Kenneth Zohore, Bruno Ecuele Manga, Stuart OKeefe, Kadeem Harris, Paul McKay and most importantly Bobby Reid all left the club.

The Terriers are currently managerless with Jan Siewert gone after just three Championship rounds. Theres a huge job to do at the John Smiths Stadium, while the players look to be in trouble ahead of this visit to Wales on Wednesday. With huge problems to sort ahead of a difficult trip, we have little faith in the Terriers improving their season in this clash. Two sides who were dumped out of the Premier League last season are finding it tough to readjust to the Championship. Cardiff have kicked things off with two defeats in three, while Huddersfield are winless in four games this term.

It is hard to argue with the prices on offer here as Rovers are a decent home side and Cardiff are struggling on the road. Over 2.5 goals is the outsider of two and given this has happened in both road games for the Welsh side this season this seems the logical bet while over 3.5 goals also appeals as a value selection.

League Table

The Bluebirds proved their worth in a 2-1 win over Luton Town and they are likely to give fans yet another reason for celebration this weekend as the Royals to not seem to be on top of their game at the moment. Reading have been struggling at the back at the start of the season and seeing that Cardiff City are determined to secure a quick return to the English top flight, away win should be considered.

Siewert was supposed to recapture the early enthusiasm of his compatriot, but his record of one win from 19 could see the club move in a new direction. Theyre practically treading water now until they find a new way forward, so things could be about to get even worse for the visitors. The Terriers have seemingly cast a wide net for their potential successor, so we might see a move away from the David Wagner school of thought at the John Smiths.

While Rovers opened up with some struggles their three-game winning run signals a rise in confidence at Ewood Park, so this is a chance for the hosts to continue their strong form and keep moving up the table. They have conceded three at Wigan and Reading, two sides who dont have as much going forward as Blackburn. Cardiff have won both home games so far, while theyve been beaten in two trips.

The hosts were able to win 10 times at home last season, while Cardiff are still suffering after poor away form in the top flight. The Welsh side lost 13 of 19 trips in the top flight last term, while we see them getting beaten for the third straight away match. Blackburn are getting back on form in defence, so were also going with a 1-0 win for Rovers in this clash. Were going with a home win as our main tip for this meeting at Ewood Park.

The visitors showed against Middlesbrough how committed they are to attacking so backing both teams to score seems the obvious call. Bookmakers make the home side obvious favourites to win the fixture and while they should oblige the first weekend showed the dangerous of taking sides at such short odds so early in the campaign. Luton had three players get among the goals in the opening weekend but it is James Collins of the three who appeals most and backing him to net again here appeals against a Cardiff side who shipped three last weekend.

Huddersfield Latest Team News

While they have tests to come on their travels, home comforts could be crucial this week as they look to see off Huddersfield once again. They have conceded three to Wigan and Reading away from home so far two sides who werent predicted to achieve much this term. However, their 2-1 win at home to Luton was a stronger afternoon for Neil Warnocks men. Cardiff have lost two from three, but they are turning into a side who have huge issues on the road.

We think theres a generous price on yet another Huddersfield defeat after the Terriers were beaten at home to another relegated side Fulham on Friday. Warnock has also won nine of his previous 11 home games in this division, so were backing his side to pull off a result. It helps the hosts that the manager tends to enjoy clashes with the Terriers. Neil Warnock has only lost two of his 14 league matches against Huddersfield (W8 D4 L2), a club he managed between 1993 and 1995. Cardiff should be back to their best at home, so we are siding with them here.

Theyve drawn a blank in three straight clashes with Cardiff, while theyve been fortunate in front of goal this season. Theyve scored three times in four games, all from Karlan Grant. We can see them struggling here, while Cardiff have a solid record going forward this term. Huddersfield Town have won none of their last 13 league games against Welsh opponents (W0 D5 L8), failing to score in 10 of those games, including each of their last five. The striker has hit two penalties in that time, while his three goals have earned just one point for his team.

They may have won 2-1 at home to a hapless Huddersfield in midweek, but they were far from convincing against the out of form side. However, Warnock hasnt had his typical defensive steel this season, with his side conceding in all four matches in the league this term. They have a manager who has been around the block in this league and hes had time to build up a side which should be far too good for the teams in the second tier. Cardiff were built up as a side to fear this season, while they still have a lot of talent at Championship level.
