Cardiff vs Preston

The intensity of the Championship continues this weekend with clubs knowing they face a set of midweek fixtures to contend with. Cardiff host Preston in a 3pm BST kick-off on Saturday afternoon from the Cardiff City Stadium. Both teams will have things they are pleased and disappointed about with their early season form so far but the away team come here still unbeaten. Will that remain in tact?

Cardiff have been a very hit and miss side so far this campaign but that was to be expected with such a large overhaul of the playing squad during the off-season. Steve Morison's side have won 2, drawn 1, and lost 2 of their opening 5 league games leaving them in 12th place. The club have enjoyed a 100% record at home in the league so far but away form has been problematic and the club have already been eliminated from the EFL Cup. The impressive left back Jamilu Collins has been ruled out for the season with injury but the club have moved quickly to sign a replacement on loan in Everton full back Niels Nkounkou. The Bluebirds have kept clean sheets in both of their home league games so far but a lack of a potent finisher remains an issue and proved costly in the 2-0 loss away to Bristol City in the Severnside Derby last weekend.

Preston will feel that this season has started reasonably well but it could've been even better. The Lilywhites are undefeated in the league so far but it's been just 1 win and 4 draws. Manager Ryan Lowe is renowned for making his teams hard to beat and if one statistic summed up the resolute nature of this North End team it's the fact that they are yet to concede a single goal in the league so far this season. The team has also only lost 1 of their 4 away games in all competitions this season and that was a narrow 2-1 loss away to Premier League Wolves in the EFL Cup 2nd Round in midweek. It was way back in 2017 that Preston last enjoyed a victory in the Welsh capital but with the defensive performances proving so resilient this season you'd feel that they fancy themselves here.

I'm worried for Cardiff in this one. Until the striker issue is sorted we'll always be struggling to take 3 points in games no matter how much we control possession. This striker issue was summed up last week with Cardiff enjoying a dominant spell against Bristol City and Max Watters missing a one-on-one only for the Robins to go up the other end and score almost immediately. I can see a similar scenario here unless Watters pulls his finger out. Morison has clearly lost patience with the front-line and understandably so. I do wonder if this game will be a 0-0 draw with Preston's solid defence keeping out Cardiff's impotent attack and vice versa. Neither team is exactly shaky at the back and neither team has an embarrassment of riches up top.

Draw @ 3.10 with Sporting Index

Correct Score: 0-0 @ 8.50 with BetVictor

Watford vs QPR

Watford currently occupy the 2nd spot on the Championship standings, just a point behind league leaders Sheffield United. In contrast, Queens Park Rangers have not enjoyed the same form recently; they've lost four of their last seven matches, with a win and two draws. With both teams' recent form in mind, we are confident that Watford will take all the points here.

Watford @2.15
