Cardiff awaiting Blackburn in 25th round of English Championship. They are coming here after got a draw in previous round against Nottingham, while before that suffered two defeats. Cardiff currently occupies 10th position at the table with 34 points from 24 rounds. Previous season they ended at 11th position and it seems that now are satisfied with results but they must try to earn all three points here in front of their fans to retain their current position. Cardiff is playing good at home and in last 8 matches at their field are undefeated, now must try to exploit that advantage and achieve some positive outcome. In last five matches against Blackburn they achieved two victories and got three draws. Cardiff showed decent performances so far but to reach higher positions they must improve their form, it won't be easy to earn all three points here and they must play on very high level to achieve positive result. As for absent players only defender Sean Morrison will stay out of action due to an injury.
Blackburn on the other side is currently at 16th position and they are coming here after two narrow defeats in previous two rounds, against Bolton and Reading, both on the road while before that were undefeated in 8 matches.
Blackburn is playing in variable form in this campaign and they must try to achieve positive result here at all costs and in order to get back at the track. Blackburn ended previous season at decent 9th place but it seems that they dropped their form in this campaign, it will be very hard for them to earn some points here against unpleasant hosts. Blackburn have failed to score in last three rounds and they must try to improve their attacking skills, in previous 24 rounds they have scored 22 goals, while conceded 20. They are now facing against strong opponents and must show much more than in previous two duels to achieve positive outcome. Only forward Bangaly-Fode Koita is having problems with minor injury and his appearance is in doubt.
Cardiff is favorite here, they will for sure give their best to achieve another positive outcome in front of their fans while Blackburn is coming here after two consecutive defeats, they dropped their form and it will be very hard to earn some points here, I believe that the hosts are closer to a victory here.
