Preston vs Cardiff (Match Preview)

Preston vs Cardiff (Match Preview)

Cardiff City travel to Preston North End looking tocontinue their revival and ascent up the Championship table.


Preston are currently struggling and lie in the relegation zone despite some improved results of late. Inconsistency has been a major worry for the Lilywhites and their previous game was a 1-0 defeat by Scunthorpe Utd - that followed a run of 3 wins in 4 games including an impressive 3-0 thumping of Hull City. Prior to that, Preston went 6 games without a win resulting in former manager Paul Simpson losing his job.


Preston have suffered from the loss of talismanic goalscorer Dave Nugent over the summer. Patrick Agyemang leads the goalscoring charts with a measly 4.


Nevertheless, there are some excellent players within the Preston squad and they should not be underestimated. Midfielder Simon Whaley is touted as a potential star while former Liverpool striker Neil Mellor is a real handful when fully fit.



Cardiff City lost 2 points at the league leaders courtesy of a last gasp Watford equaliser to crush the Bluebirds spirits. However, the football played was superb at times and current form is now better than encouragingand if we continue to play in the same vein, a win at Deepdale is likely.


The 2-2 Watford draw came after a 1-0 win over Shefield United in which we outclassed the star-studded visitors and built on a miserly defence. Before that was the unlucky 1-0 defeat to Bristol City, we played well with 10 men and were unfortunate to lose. Prior to that were back-to-back wins over Blackpool and Colchester United.


The return fixture at Ninian Park ended 2-2 after a brace from Callum Davidson and Robbie Fowler. Preston equalised in the very last minute courtesy of a wonderstrike.



The game is very winnable for Cardiff City, Preston are unpredicatble and always capable of a performance but the positive football and sharp passing game is paying off for Cardiff, and they ought to get a win today. Vital Cardiff predicts a 3-1 win for the Bluebirds.
