Our prediction for this Championship match:
QPR will look to make amends for a 1-0 loss to Blackburn Rovers when they host Cardiff City to their Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium on Saturday. The Hoops are eager to stay in the playoffs berth, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at the Bluebirds. Both Marshall and Gray are pushing for a start, while defender Dion Sanderson is back from suspension. You should know that QPR are after their 10th home win of the process.
Cardiff City, on the other hand, did well to beat Derby County in a postponed fixture, with the team moving one step closer to securing the Championship survival. Anyhow the Hoops want this win more than the Bluebirds, and we predict that they will prove their worth on the field. The likes of Max Waters, Curtis Nelson, and Sean Morrison should miss out with injuries for the visiting side.

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.
