Bet £5 on Cardiff City v Sunderland and get £20 Free Bets with Coral
Cardiff City have been dumped out of the automatic promotion places having spent most of the season as one of the Championship top-two. The South Wales side looked like potential champions at one stage of the campaign but once Wolverhampton Wanderers found top-gear they were always going to be hard to stop in their tracks. The Bluebirds' form has since dropped and their top-two ambitions have taken a battering with in-form teams such as Aston Villa and Derby County taking the initiative.
Cardiff may have lost their last four Championship games but they remain outside the top-two purely on goal-difference alone and things aren't all doom and gloom, yet. Nevertheless Neil Warnock will be desperate to turn things around as quickly as possible and his side have a great chance to do just that when they host struggling Sunderland this weekend.

Sunderland have failed to find their feet in the Championship as yet and while Simon Grayson was brought in to steady the ship following their relegation from the Premier League, results have been utterly appalling and former Wales manager Chris Coleman has now replaced Grayson as boss at the Stadium of Light.
There have been signs of slight improvement under Coleman, however with fellow strugglers Birmingham and Bolton Wanderers also picking up points of late, it is looking pretty bleak for the Black Cats as they sit firmly at the foot of the table and we don't envisage them managing anything from this match.
Sunderland have been having serious problems in front of goal this season and we don't believe that they will threaten the home defence too much. The Bluebirds aren't the highest scorers themselves of late with no goals in two of their last four Championship outings, therefore while we believe that Cardiff City will edge their way to three points on Saturday afternoon, it certainly won't be a goal-fest and we'll be going for a home win and under 2.5 goals at odds of 13/5 with Ladbrokes Free Bets.
