Preston North End vs Cardiff City
Date: Sunday, 18 October 2020
Kick-Off at 12.00 UK
Venue: Deepdale, Preston
English Championship Round 5 is going to be wrapped up on Sunday noon at Deepdale where Preston North End welcomes Cardiff City.
Hosts were one of the toughest teams to beat when it comes to home games in the previous season, especially the first part of that previous season.
Both teams had a bit slow start so far, having collected only four points and occupying positions in lower part of the Championship table.
That is surely going to change for a winner of this clash. As expected, Preston are warm favorites for the win currently priced at 2.30 rate.

Preston vs Cardiff City Prediction
Preston have stunned everyone just before the international break with their performance at Community Stadium against Brentford. They were down by two goals in the first half, and many thought that game is over.
However, Preston came back in big style by scoring four goals in the second part and winning the game. Man of the match was Scott Sinclair with two goals and one assist.
If they can conquer one of the hardest grounds in the league like that, they definitely have a good shot against Cardiff.
Team from Wales is having a disappointing campaign that includes home losses to Sheffield Wednesday and Reading. The only victory was achieved away against last placed Nottingham Forest.
We feel that home pick has a lot of value, while banker choice is in Under 2.5 FT selection.
