Punter's Pick

It certainly wouldn’t be surprising if this game finished in a stalemate or victory by the odd goal. Bet365 are offering 21/10 for the draw or alternatively take 5/6 for over 3.5 cards in what is likely to be a fiercely competitive battle.

Cardiff welcome Huddersfield to the Cardiff City Stadium in a real 6 pointer, as both teams battle to stave off relegation and continue their Premier League adventure.

Huddersfield come in to this game rooted to the foot of the table, having lost their last 9 games. However, David Wagner will consider himself unlucky as the team has displayed real fighting qualities and have been unfortunate in not taking something from many games this season.

Neil Warnock’s men however have found glimpses of form in between various draws and losses, which has allowed them to enter this game just outside the bottom 3. No wins in their first 9 games has been improved by 5 wins out of their next 13. But just like Huddersfield, their mood was dampened on the weekend as Gillingham performed a giant killing and knocked Cardiff out of the FA Cup.

Neil Warnock’s mood certainly wouldn’t have improved after failing to land some major signings. Nathaniel Clyne opted to join Bournemouth and a proposed £10m deal for Nice midfielder Adrien Tameze also fell through. Therefore both managers will look to their current pool of players to produce the performances required in order to push them away from the drop zone.

Cardiff will certainly go in to this game feeling more confident, having not lost to Huddersfield in their last 10 encounters. Neil Warnock done the double over Huddersfield in the 2016/17 season in the Championship, however the reverse fixture this season finished 0-0, illustrating how little there is to choose between these two sides.

With so much on the line, the fans can expect a cagey affair as both teams will be desperate not to lose. The top scorers for both teams are Callum Paterson for Cardiff City with 4 and Mathias Jorgensen with 3, highlighting a real lack of cutting edge up front and a struggle for goals from all areas of the park.
