Mick McCarthy takes his Cardiff City team to the Liberty Stadium to face high-flying Swansea in the second South Wales derby of the season. The Swans have been in outstanding form this season as they look to return to the Premier League at the third attempt of asking. The arrival of Conor Hourihane has given Steve Coopers a big boost, with the Irishman scoring five goals and assisting one in 11 games.
The Bluebirds go into the game off the back of their first defeat under McCarthy (a run that spammed 11 games), last time out against promotion-chasing Watford. Despite being stung by the Hornets through a stoppage-time winner from Adam Masina, Cardiff will travel to their bitter rivals confident of causing an upset. It will be interesting to see how McCarthy’s team bounces back after their first defeat, with Cardiff continuing to make up ground on the Championship top six.
We are backing the Bluebirds to cause an upset at 19/10.
