Betting Tip: Cardiff City @ 27/20 with bet365

After the storm, there is calm. Cardiff City were in the headlines for all the wrong reasons thanks to Vincent Tan and Malky Mackay, although the Welsh side are now on a steadier footing and look set for a promotion assault this season.

Russell Slade is getting things right with the Bluebirds and a victory tonight would move them to within a point of the play-off places, with Cardiff looking a touch of value to get a win in this south-west clash which is usually a spicy affair.

City have won four of their six home games and that includes a recent 1-0 win against Middlesbrough, with the Welsh side unbeaten in the last four games and sure to pose problems for opponents who sit just above the relegation zone.

Bristol City did manage a surprise 1-0 win at Middlesbrough earlier in the season, although the Robins have lost three times on the road this term, most recently at Brighton where they took an early lead before being pegged back.

The visitors have only kept one clean sheet on the road all season and given that Cardiff have conceded just four goals on home soil, it would seem logical to go for a 1-0 and 2-0 win on the correct score market.

Joe Mason has five for the season and might be the man to break the deadlock, with Peter Whittingham the penalty taker for the home team and we’re sure to see a few challenges flying in during the game.
