🗞️ Team News: Cardiff City

Sol Bamba (Cancer) and Jordi Osei-Tutu (Hamstring Injury) are not available for Cardiff manager Mick McCarthy.

🗞️ Team News: Preston North End

Out of a mainly available group, there is only the lone fitness issue for the Preston North End gaffer Alex Neil to be concerned with. Patrick Bauer (Achilles tendon rupture) won’t be in action.

💭 Prediction

Our assessment is that Preston North End will likely create enough chances to get a goal against this Cardiff City outfit, although that realistically won’t prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.

We reckon that it will be a very close game with a 2-1 winning margin for Cardiff City at the end of this one. Hopefully this is a good one.
