Our prediction for this Championship match:
DW Stadium will host Saturday’s game between Wigan Athletic and Cardiff City, the two teams who are almost level on points in the Championship table. The Latics aim to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Hull City, with the team still eyeing their first home win of the process. Both Cousins and Edwards remain on the sidelines with injuries, while experienced forward Charlie Wyke should be recalled to the starting XI.
The Bluebirds, on the other hand, aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Blackburn Rovers. Cardiff City, though, have been struggling on the travels this season (1-1-4), and we do not believe that they are going to pick up more than one point from Saturday’s match. Rubin Colwill is a major doubt, while both Kion Etete and Jamilu Collins remain on the sidelines with injuries.
Highlighted Player (Jason Kerr):
Jason Kerr is a professional footballer who plays for St Johnstone as a defender. Born in Edinburgh, Scotland, on February 6, 1997, Jason Kerr is a product of the St Johnstone football academy. He started his senior career in 2014, and after ending his loan spells with East Fife and Queen of the South, he returned to the McDiarmid Park outfit in 2018.
He made his debut with the Saints in the Scottish Cup game against Albion Rovers on January 29, 2019. Jason Kerr has six caps with the Scotland U21 team, but he has yet to receive a call-up for the senior team.
He scored his first goal for St Johnstone in a 4-1 defeat to Rangers on February 27, 2018. His primary position on the field is a centre-back, but he is capable of producing good displays as a central midfielder as well. His preferred foot is right, and he wears the number 15 shirt at St Johnstone.
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.
