Last Game: Watford 0-1 Cardiff
Saturday, February 3 at 3pm in Championship

We said: Cardiff City 2-1 Preston North End

Cardiff earned a much-needed three points at Watford last Saturday, and with a host of January arrivals set for their home debuts, it could be a good afternoon for the Bluebirds against Preston.
