Cardiff v Wolves Match Preview & Betting Tips

With no late Premier League game on Saturday, it's all eyes on the Championship as Wolves visit South Wales to take on draw-specialists Cardiff. The Bluebirds have drawn 1-1 twice and 2-2 in their matches so far and will look to grab their first three points of the season against the men from Black Country




It was a disappointing season for Cardiff last year with a midtable finish the best they could conjure. The Welshmen will be hoping they can push for the play-offs this season, but many fans still have reservations over manager Russell Slade. The former Leyton Orient manager was plucked from League One after leading his side to a top 6 finish against the odds. Three draws this season has proved he's toughened his side up and makes them hard to beat, but they lack flair and the ability to kill games off. 

It was a poor show in midweek as Wolves blew a 2-0 lead at Molineux to QPR. Kevin McDonald and Benik Afobe has given them the lead, but they were beaten by Matt Phillips and Charlie Austin strikes. Kenny Jackett will want his side to bounce back from that disappointment, but this is a tough place to come. 

I think the men in gold will just about edge this content. It will be tight and it might take a late goal to secure all 3 points, but I believe Kenny Jackett is the right man to prevent heads dropping after the midweek collapse. 

Wolves to win by 1 goal – 7/2 Ladbrokes


Cardiff have scored in each of their 3 league games, they've also managed to concede too. I can't see this pattern changing anytime soon.

Joe Mason is off the mark for the season having scored against Blackburn in midweek. He had a cracking pre-season and looks likely to add to his tally.
