Cardiff City have slipped-up in pursuit of the second automatic promotion place and while they hammered woeful Sunderland to the tune of 4-0 in their last outing, this win came on the back of a dismal four-game losing run in the league and the Bluebirds have slipped into third place in the Championship table. Neil Warnock will be hopeful that his side can build on their thrashing of Sunderland by claiming all three points when they visit Hillsborough this weekend and given the Owls' struggles this season, we'll be backing the South Wales side to do just that.
Wednesday are very much the second force in Sheffield this season with arch-rivals United hogging the local headlines following their impressive campaign thus far. Carlos Carvalhal paid the price for his side's failures by leaving the club by 'mutual consent' and new manager Jos Luhukay will be hopeful of steering the Owls back towards the play-offs, something which isn't entirely beyond the team.

Recent results would lead us to believe that any such challenge for a top-six finish may be beyond the Owls however and they head into this run on that back of a poor Championship run during which they have lost five and drawn one of their last seven league games. Indeed Wednesday have picked up a mere three points in their last six matches at Hillsborough and there is no evidence to suggest that they will collect all three points against a Cardiff City side which have banged in eight goals in their last two competitive outings.
The Bluebirds may have been banging in the goals with reckless abandon of late, however they have been less than secure in defence and while we believe that the visitors will grab themselves another win on Saturday evening, it won't be a one-sided affair by any means with the home side likely to manage a consolation goal along the way.
