Cardiff City will come into the match following a 2-1 Championship win against Wycombe Wanderers in their most recent fixture.

In that game, Cardiff City had 56% possession and 10 shots at goal with 4 of them on target. The only player on the scoresheet for Cardiff City was Kieffer Moore (22', 71'). At the other end, Wycombe Wanderers had 15 shots at goal with 2 of them on target. Joe Jacobson (43') scored for Wycombe Wanderers.

The stats don’t lie, and Cardiff City have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 games, letting opponents get 11 goals in total. In defence, The Bluebirds have clearly had some problems.

Looking at their past form shows that Cardiff City:

  • have not won against Birmingham City in away games against them for the last 5 league games. Not good at all.
  • haven't been defeated in their previous 2 away league matches.
  • are without a win away from home in their last 3 matches in the league.
