Our prediction for this Championship match:
Peterborough United and Cardiff City square off against each other at Weston Homes Stadium in what is expected to be an entertaining Championship game. The Posh quickly bounced back from a 3-0 loss at Luton, with the team beating Derby 2-1 in their first home game of the season. Both Burrows and Dembele are pushing for a start as the duo helped Peterborough make a come-back in the dying minutes of Saturday’s clash.
Both Jones and Taylor, on the other hand, are sidelined through injuries. The Bluebirds kicked off the new Championship campaign with a 1-1 draw with Barnsley, with the team beating Blackpool 2-0 on the road in their second game of the season. Even though all Tomlin, Vassell, Evans, and Davies have been struggling with injuries of late, we predict that the visitors are going to grab something from the midweek fixture.
Highlighted Player (Mark Beevers):
Born in Barnsley, England on November 21, 1989, Mark Beevers is a 193-cm tall defender who plays for Peterborough United. The product of Sheffield Wednesday football school made 140 appearances in the league for the Owls before signing a permanent deal with fellow Championship club Millwall.
Mark Beevers scored 7 goals in 117 appearances for the Lions, playing for the club until the 2016 transfer window. The English defender then moved to Bolton where he scored 11 goals in 121 appearances in the league.
In May 2019 Mark Beevers signed a three-year deal with Peterborough United. He made his League One debut with the Posh in a 3-1 loss to Fleetwood Town on August 3, 2019. His main position is centre-back, but he is used as a left-back as well. His preferred foot is left and he has a contract with Peterborough United which should expire on June 30, 2022.
Highlighted Team (Cardiff):
Cardiff City are a Welsh football club that compete in the English second tier (Championship). In 2009 they moved from Ninian Park to Cardiff City Stadium, the venue that officially holds 33,280 spectators.
The Bluebirds played their first ever Premier League match on 18 August, 2013, but they were beaten by West Ham United (0-2) on their debut in the English top flight. However, a week later Fraizer Campbell (two goals) and Aron Gunnarson helped Cardiff City record their first ever win in the Premier League.
The Bluebirds outplayed Manchester City back then, but they eventually dropped to the Championship at the end of the season. Fellow Welsh outfit Swansea City are considered Cardiff’s fiercest rivals and the two teams take on each other in the South Wales derby.
The colour of Cardiff City’s home kit is blue, whilst they wear red shirts and shorts when playing on the travels.
