England Premier League
Saturday 12th January 2019
Kick off at 3pm GMT
Venue: Cardiff City Stadium
Cardiff come into this game with just 1 win in their past five and even though they are 17th and just safe their form suggests a team who could be relegated. Their last league game ended in a 3-0 defeat to Tottenham but they will look at this game and think they have a great chance to get all three points.
Neil Warnock’s side are two points clear of the bottom three so a win here would give them a huge boost to put some distance between themselves and the relegation zone.
At home they have lost their last two games and conceded 8 goals but those defeats were against Tottenham and Manchester United, and we should note that before that they were on a 3 game winning run here.
Huddersfield are bottom and do look doomed for Championship football next season. They are 4 points adrift of 19th place and 8 points from safety, the writing looks like it is on the wall for The Terriers.
The club have not picked up any points since the end of November when they beat Wolves which was only their 2nd win of the season. Away from home they have lost their last 4 games in a row and from a possible 30 points they have won just 5.
Cardiff: Kadeem Harris could be assessed after suffering a shoulder injury in the FA Cup. Daniel Ward could miss out after a minor facial injury, the player wants to play but the club remain cautious.
Huddersfield: The club have a big list of long term injuries but Tommy Smith is hopeful to be back in the squad after a lack of match fitness.
Cardiff vs Huddersfield Head to Head:

Cardiff have won five of their last home meetings against Huddersfield.
Cardiff vs Huddersfield Prediction:
Our prediction here is to see a home win but cover the draw also due to the small difference in quality between the two teams. Cardiff were in decent home form before meeting two big guns and they should be able to shrug that off. Lose or even draw here and the club are showing no hope to stay up, this is a big game for them and they are at home and do have a great record over their opponents. Home fans have seen so many goals fly past their side, the team will want to repay them with a good performance this weekend.
