Preston vs Cardiff City Championship Prediction by LeagueLane

Cardiff vs Preston
EFL Championship
Date: Saturday, 27 August 2022
Kick-off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Cardiff City Stadium.

Cardiff City will hear the Ayatollah being sung by their fans as they will lock horns with Preston in EFL Championship this week at the Cardiff City Stadium.

The Lilywhites are unbeaten in the EFL Championship season so far. Ryan Lowe’s side has won one game and drew four after match-day 5 concluded.

It is worth knowing that both teams are tied with seven points each in the league table. However, Steve Morison’s side can take the top spot if a win is secured.

An unbeaten streak of two games was kept by the Wales-based club, however Bristol City ended it. In their last league outing, the Bluebirds lost to the Robins 2-0. Steve Morrison’s side managed to dominate the game but they failed to break Bristol City’s defence.

Meanwhile, Preston failed to advance to the third round of the EFL Cup losing 2-1 to Premier League side Wolves. Ben Woodburn scored the only goal for the Lilywhites in the 48th minute.

In their last league outing, Ryan Lowe’s side managed to hold Watford till the end of the game. Ben Woodburn played as a substitute in that game.

A win for Steve Morrison’s side will take the Bluebirds to the top spot in the table.
