Few expected Cardiff City to be one of the frontrunners for an automatic promotion place this season, however as things stand the Bluebirds sit second in the Championship table with a four-point lead over third-placed Aston Villa thanks to their midweek 1-0 win at Ipswich Town. With just thirteen games of the season left to play, promotion is definitely in Cardiff City's hands and given their form of late, it would take a pretty brave man to bet against them plying their trade in the Premier League next season.
Neil Warnock certainly wasn't too optimistic about his side's chances of having a shot at promotion at the beginning of the season, however given that he has already won seven promotions in what has been a glittering career in management, is it really such a surprise to see his side performing so well? Cardiff's unbeaten Championship run now stands at seven games with five wins during that time and they will certainly give visitors Bristol City a run for their money on Sunday afternoon.
Bristol City also remain amongst the promotion contenders this season although in all likelihood they will need to settle for a play-off place at best. They could only manage a share of the spoils in their midweek meeting with Fulham although while they certainly aren't showing anything like the level of consistency that they were earlier in the campaign, boss Lee Johnson has the players which are more than capable of turning things around as we head towards the business end of the season.
The Robins have managed just a single win in twelve competitive outings, however they have shown an ability to bounce back from disappointing runs and we don't see this sticky patch lasting too long. Nevertheless Cardiff City are pretty solid on home soil this term and have built their success around a strong defensive set-up, while the Robins' rearguard have been breached with relative ease of late. This won't be a high-scoring affair by any means, however we envisage the hosts coming out on top and edging their way to three points this weekend.
