Full Time Result -> Cardiff City at odds 2.25
In what could be a pivotal match in the battle for survival, 17th-placed Cardiff welcome rock-bottom Huddersfield with the home side just two points above the relegation zone, and eight points ahead of their visitors.Sent packing from the FA Cup by League One opponents last week, Premier League (PL) survival is now the only priority for Cardiff. Going all out, the Welsh side have drawn just once in their last 18 league outings (W5, D1, L12).Although they have just one win in their last five PL games (W1, D1, L3), Cardiff’s form against other struggling sides might give them an edge. The hosts are unbeaten against teams currently in the relegation zone (W2, D1) - with two of their five total clean sheets this season coming in those fixtures.In a downward spiral, Huddersfield have now recorded eight league defeats in a row - three of their last four have been against fellow bottom six sides (Burnley, Fulham, Southampton).Remarkably six of those eight losses have come by a one-goal margin, while in a case of ‘close but no cigar’, Huddersfield have gone on to lose six of the eight PL matches that they were drawing at the break (D/L) - a league high.
