Cardiff City v Bristol City Preview, Championship, Saturday 26th October 2015

Cardiff City head into this game on Monday night unbeaten in their last four matches played and a win against struggling Bristol City would move Russell Slade’s side up into 7th position of the league table and above Reading who despite taking a 2-0 lead yesterday against ended up losing the game 4-2 against Fulham and that should be all the incentive needed for the Cardiff City players to win this match.

Bristol City are having a torrid time of it at the moment with the side having only managed to win one of their last five matches played which they beat Nottingham Forest at home 2-0, however a 2-1 defeat away against Brighton & Hove Albion in their last match will no doubt have seen any confidence that the players might have quickly disappear and this looks another tough game for the side that is currently 21st in the league table.

Cardiff Team News:

The hosts have Joe Ralls back in contention after missing Tuesday’s game with a hamstring injury, but striker Kenwyne Jones remains sidelined with a shin problem so Alex Revell is expected to lead the line up front again alongside the clubs current top goalscorer James Mason.

Bristol City Team News:

The visitors could name an unchanged starting team, although forward Simon Cox is pushing for a start after coming off the bench to make his debut at Brighton. If he is named among the substitutes, Aaron Wilbraham and Jonathan Kodjia will spearhead the attack.

Cardiff City v Bristol City Match Betting Odds Market

Cardiff City are the current clear favourites to win this game on Monday night with a best price available of 6/4 with BetVictor – Receive £50 Free Bets For New Customers which will probably see plenty of takers as it does look the value play here.

The Draw has not happened once in the previous eight matches played between the two clubs over recent season’s so is not a result that is expected which is reflected by its current best odds of 12/5 with Ladbrokes – Receive £50 Free Bets for New Customers.

Bristol City have it all to do here for me and their recent form has hardly been inspiring so I would be surprised to see the visitors return home with all 3pts from this game and the online bookmakers seem to agree offering up a current best price of 9/4 with Betfred – Bet £10 & Receive £30 Free Bets for New Customers.

Cardiff City v Bristol City Match Predictions, Banker Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets

From what we have seen from both clubs this season and the fact that Cardiff City have a good record at home against Bristol City, this match does seem to point towards a home win on Monday night and with the online bookmakers offering up good value on this at around 6/4 with a few places.

Bristol City are struggling at the moment and although they did beat Nottingham Forest 2-0 at home back on the 16th October they didn’t keep that winning run going by losing 2-1 away against Brighton & Hove Albion in their last match played and I can see a similar score-line in this game.

Onto some predictions then and my Banker Free Tip is going to be for Cardiff City to Win as they are the side in the better recent form and do enjoy a very good record over their visitors when having home advantage.

My First Goalscorer Free Tip is going to be Cardiff City striker Joe Mason as he is the clubs current top goalscorer at the moment with five goals this season and looks good value to open up the scoring for the hosts in front of a packed out Cardiff City Stadium.
