The hosts start the game in 19th, holding a six-point cushion above the bottom three.
8th place Cardiff are pushing for a play off place: currently four points behind the top six after an inconsistent season.
Huddersfield have the fourth-worst home record in the division. They’ve scored in five of their last seven home games, with eight goals in the last five. The Terriers have scored in 81% of their matches since joining dropping to the Championship, will these goals be enough?
Cardiff’s away form is not good: 15th in the away standings, with just three wins on their travels this season. They are able to score, hitting 21 goals in 16 games but defence consistently lets them down. The Bluebirds average 1.94 goals against per away game – vulnerable. Seven out of eight Cardiff away games have had both teams scoring, and Huddersfield are showing fine form in front of goal.
In Huddersfield’s last 11 league matches against Cardiff City they have drawn 4 and lost 7, not winning since January 2003. Cardiff have lost just one in the last 10 league games (W3 D6 L1) looking for back to back away wins for the first time since March 2018. Cardiff have already drawn 13 times this season making them prime candidates for an even away game.
We predict a 1-1 score draw.
