Cardiff City v Leeds United Tips – Bluebirds to enjoy home win

Cardiff City must win match against Leeds United (credit: Dino Panato/Getty Images)
Cardiff City host Leeds United on Saturday lunchtime knowing that they will be in the Championship play-offs for a third straight season if they fail to win.

Betfred Match Odds: Cardiff 8/11, Draw 13/5, Leeds 4/1

The Bluebirds defeated Derby 2-0 in midweek which made it eight games unbeaten, while they are also 11 games unbeaten in games against their opponents.

However Malky Mackay’s plans have been hit by the loss of influential midfielder Craig Conway for the rest of the season with ankle ligament damage, while striker Rudy Gestede is struggling with a hip problem and midfielder Don Cowie is carrying a minor knock.

Neil Warnock will bring his Leeds side to South Wales looking to spoil the party,after they failed to prevent Blackpool from boosting their play-off aspirations in midweek.

The Whites have lost four of their five previous matches, including the last two away, so will not be full of confidence, while they are missing defender Darren O’Dea who saw red against Blackpool and striker Billy Paynter is out with an Achilles injury.

Cardiff have the momentum and desire for points and we can’t see anything other than a banker home win from this match-up.

Prediction: Cardiff Home Win 90 Minutes @ 8/11

Value Bet: Cardiff To Win 3-1 Correct Score @ 12/1
