Despite being on the receiving end of a couple of thrashings recently, Cardiff City have been showing signs of improvement following what was a dreadful start to the season. Neil Warnock’s men have managed to haul themselves out of the relegation zone thanks to a reasonable spell of form throughout November, however they were expected to struggle against the likes of Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur over the festive period and it was no surprise when they lost 1-5 and 0-3 respectively in those matches. Indeed the Bluebirds have won just one of their last six outings across all competitions, a dismal run which culminated in a hugely disappointing 1-0 defeat at Gillingham in the FA Cup last time out. As such spirits will be pretty low in the home camp ahead of their weekend meeting with the Terriers although the visitors are in real trouble right now and if Cardiff are to start winning games, then this is surely one in which three points are a must, the bookmakers giving away free bets on Cardiff City v Huddersfield Town.
David Wagner’s men have collected just ten points from their 21 league matches and as such they sit firmly at the foot of the Premier League table. They have only managed a single win away from home this term and head into this clash on the back of a poor run during which they have lost each of their last nine games, this run culminating in a dismal 1-0 defeat to Championship side Bristol City in the FA Cup.
Cardiff City may not be enjoying the best of form right now with defeat in each of their last two outings, however one of these came against high-flying Tottenham Hotspur and whilst the subsequent defeat to lowly Gillingham in the FA Cup was a massive disappointment, Bluebirds boss Neil Warnock will undoubtedly be prioritising Premier League survival above all else and the hosts represent great value to return to winning ways in front of their home fans this weekend, BetVictor Bookmakers going 5/4 on Cardiff City to win.
