Cardiff City are being heavily backed to continue their promotion push by beating Nottingham Forest at the City Ground on Saturday afternoon. The South Wales side are a surprise appearance in the top-two at this stage of the campaign and they certainly weren't expected to be challenging for a place in the top-flight this term, however following an excellent first half of the season they are now amongst the favourites to win automatic promotion in 2017/18.

Neil Warnock has proven himself to be an extremely competent manager at this level and he has lifted a side which had stagnated somewhat following their single Premier League season in 2013/14. Indeed the Bluebirds ended a dismal run which saw them win just twice in six games by grabbing back-to-back wins-to-nil against Barnsley and Brentford and with Cardiff possessing the best defence in the Championship, they will certainly provide Nottingham Forest with solid opposition this weekend.

The Tricky Trees have been managing better than many expected and thanks to their decent home record, they sit just two points adrift of the top-six as things stand. Indeed for Mark Warburton's men this weekend's match will be a case of all or nothing given that they have drawn none of their eighteen Championship games this season although the visiting Bluebirds have the upper hand historically with wins in eight of their last ten meetings.

This is no time to be backing a share of the spoils and we'll be siding with the visitors to collect all three points and edge their way ever closer to promotion to the Premier League.
