MATCH PREVIEW

MAIN PREDICTION: HOME WIN

The final 25 minutes of Cardiff’s game against Preston was packed with drama but it was Cardiff who claimed the three points as late goals from Nat Mendez-Laing and Robert Glatzel helped them to a 3-1 win. The Welsh side have won three league games in a row and now occupy sixth place ahead of the visit of Charlton in midweek.

 

Charlton claimed three huge points in their battle for survival when they beat QPR 1-0 at The Valley on Saturday afternoon. An organised backline has helped the visitors restart their season with back-to-back 1-0 wins with Lee Bowyer’s men now up to 18th place, even if they aren’t out of the relegation battle just yet.

 

Charlton have started the final stage of their season in fine form but could struggle here against a Cardiff side who have been even more impressive.

 

SECOND PREDICTION: FIRST TEAM TO SCORE – CARDIFF

Cardiff have opened the scoring in both of their games since the restart and I expect them to continue that run here. The hosts have scored at least two goals in each of their last four league games and should be able to keep out a Charlton side who are without a clear goal threat.

 

HEAD TO HEAD

The two sides played out an entertaining 2-2 draw when they met at the Millennium Stadium earlier this season.
