Our football match prediction:
Cardiff City could not have wished for a better start to the season. The Bluebirds recorded a win in each of their first five games in the Championship, but they head into Tuesday’s football match against Preston following a 1-1 draw with Fulham. The Welsh outfit aim to retain top position in the standings and we predict that they will go for a win against Preston on Matchday 7. Cardiff City have defeated the likes of Burton Albion and Wolverhampton on the road this season and that is giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the trip to Preston. The Lilywhites have been impressive at the back at the start of the season and they are likely to rely on their rock-solid defence in Tuesday’s clash against Cardiff City. A close encounter appears on the cards and we predict that Preston are going to share the spoils with the league leaders at their Deepdale Stadium.
Highlighted Player (Tom Clarke):
Tom Clarke is a defender who plays for Preston North End. He used to play for Huddersfield Town, Halifax (loan), Bradford City (loan) and Leyton Orient (loan) in the past and in May, 2013 he joined the Lilywhites. On 5 August, 2013 Clarke scored the winner for Preston against Blackpool and it has to be noted that it was his only second appearance for the club. Tom is Nathan Clarke’s brother and his main position is centre back. However, the Preston footballer is capable of playing as both left and right back as well. Tom Clarke played for England U18 and U19 teams and he scored one goal for the national team at international youth level. Clarke won Football League One play-offs on two occasions. He did it with Huddersfield Town in 2012 and with Preston in 2015. He made 35 appearances for the Lilywhites in the 2015/2016 Championship campaign, but he failed to find the net.
Highlighted Team (Cardiff City):
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.
