Meanwhile, Preston have proved themselves to be a difficult side to beat in recent weeks. They are unbeaten in the last 5 league games with 2 wins and 3 draws. One of those wins is a priceless one which ended the long standing unbeaten run of Brighton on the second week of January. The North End are also an extreme side to come up against in away fixtures. They are unbeaten in the last 4 and were beaten just once in last 9.

Cardiff vs Preston: Head-to-head stats

Cardiff had picked up 2 wins and 2 draws in four matches against Preston before beaten by a 3-0 margin in the first leg fixture of this season on September 2016. They will certainly gain some confidence after ending the win-less streak, but they have a poor record while playing at the Cardiff City stadium.

Preston haven’t won an away game against Cardiff since 2004 suffering 4 defeats along-with 3 draws.

Cardiff vs Preston: Prediction

The recent home form of Cardiff is commendable, while Preston have produced some good performances both home and away. Therefore, punters should approach this match with caution. We believe the best option is to back Cardiff on a double chance to win or draw mainly based on their h2h at home in recent years.

Both Cardiff and Preston have scored in their last 5 home vs away matches in all competitions. So, there is a better chance for both teams to get on the score-sheet with the teams eyeing a full three pointer from this fixture.

Cardiff vs Preston: Bet Tips

Both Teams to Score at 1/1 (2.00)
