Cardiff 2/5 to beat Burton in Fridays Championship clash

Competition: Championship

Market: Cardiff to beat Burton

Odds: 2/5 @ Bet365

As Cardiff continue to march towards the Premier League next season, on Friday afternoon Neil Warnock will be desperate for his side to close the gap on league leaders Wolves.

For Neil Warnock’s high-flying Bluebirds, the former Crystal Palace boss has transformed his side into one of the Championships most feared sides. Recently signing a new long-term contract at the Cardiff City Stadium, the Welsh side have now won their last five matches on the bounce and have shown no signs of slowing down on their seven-match unbeaten run. Now with a seven-point advantage over Fulham in third spot, it has been Cardiff’s defensive resolve that has caught the most attention. With the best defensive record in the Championship this season, Cardiff have also only been beaten once in 2018.

As for the Brewers, Nigel Clough has been unable to improve on his sides poor form last year and once again, Burton find themselves at the heart of a relegation battle. Only avoiding the drop by a single point last year, Burton now sit 23rd in the Championship table and life in League One is looking more likely by the week. Now sat three points adrift of safety, the Brewers recent form has shown no signs of improving. Burton are on a five-match winless run and have recorded just one win in their last 13 attempts.
