          Cardiff City vs Stoke City Preview, Tips & Stats

          Stoke City make the trip to Cardiff for the Saturday afternoon action in the Championship. Both sides currently sit in the bottom half of the Championship, looking for a win to either jump up into the top half or to put some room between them and the relegation zone.

          Cardiff currently sit 14th in the Championship after 33 games. The BlueBirds have 12 wins, five draws and 16 losses, leaving them on 41 points, three points from the top half of the table.

          In their last five games in all competitions, Cardiff have one win, one draw and three losses.

          Josh Bowler scored the only goal of the game just before the halftime whistle to give Cardiff the 1 - 0 win over Watford. Preston took a 2 - 0 lead into halftime through goals from Emil Riis Jakobsen and Ben Whiteman. Despite having more shots on target, Cardiff were unable to score and slumped to a 2 - 0 loss.

          West Brom took the lead in the first minute through Michael Johnston and Andreas Weimann doubled the lead with ten minutes to go. Cardiff had just one shot on target in the 2 - 0 win for West Brom. Cardiff took the lead against Norwich through Jamilu Collins, but a brace from Josh Sargent and goals from Gabriel Sara and Christian Fassnacht gave Norwich the 4 - 1 win.

          The last time out for Cardiff was against Blackburn. Cardiff had just 40% of the possession and five shots on target, but was unable to find the back of the net. However, neither could Blackburn and the game finished in a 0 - 0 draw.

          Stoke City sit just below Cardiff in 19th in the Championship. In 33 games, Stoke have nine wins, eight draws and 16 losses which leaves them on 35 points, just three points above the relegation zone.

          In their last five games in all competitions, Stoke has one win and four losses.

          Mason Burstow gave Sunderland the 1 - 0 lead at halftime and Abdoullah Ba and Pierre Ekwah added to the scoreline in the second half. An own goal from Jenson Seelt got Stoke on the scoresheet, but it wasn’t enough as Sunderland held on for a 3 - 1 win. The next time out was one to forget against Leicester. A brace from Patson Daka and a brace from Jamie Vardy along with a goal from Kasey McAteer gave Leicester the 5 - 0 win over Stoke.

          Stoke once again slipped to a 3 - 0 deficit, with a brace from Tyrhys Dolan and a goal from Sammie Szmodics giving Blackburn the 3 - 0 lead. Niall Ennis got Stoke on the scoresheet before halftime but Stoke were unable to grab another goal and slumped to another 3 - 1 loss. However, Stoke bounced back against QPR. Wouter Burger scored the only goal of the game on the stroke of halftime to give Stoke the 1 - 0 win.

          The most recent outing for Stoke was against Coventry. Ellis Simms grabbed a goal in the 51st minute to give Coventry the 1 - 0 win over Stoke who only managed one shot on target.

          Cardiff and Stoke have met 54 times in their histories, with the first meeting coming back in 1921. Not much separates the two sides, with Stoke having 21 wins in comparison to Cardiff’s 18 wins, the other 15 games ending in a draw.
