Our football match prediction:
Brighton will be looking to build on a hard-fought win over Fulham when they face Cardiff City in Wales on Saturday afternoon. The Seagulls managed to melt Newcastle’s advantage to only two points in the Championship standings, meaning that a win over Cardiff City would see them climb to top position in the table. Brighton are eyeing their fourth consecutive away win and they are likely to pick up all three points from Saturday’s football match. The Bluebirds suffered yet another disappointing defeat at the weekend as they were beaten by Aston Villa in Birmingham and, as a result, they dropped to the relegation zone in the Championship standings. It is well known that Cardiff City struggle when facing top-table sides and we predict that the visitors will emerge triumphant in the Cardiff City Stadium clash. Glenn Murray scored against Fulham at the weekend and he is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders.
