Cardiff and Bristol City meet in the Championship on Friday with both sides looking to string some consistent form together at the Cardiff City Stadium. Both sides come into the game on the back much-needed midweek wins, but can either now build on that?

Cardiff Form


Cardiff are the early-season draw specialists in the Championship. Neil Harris' side have had to settle for a share of the points in four of their last seven league games.

With just one defeat in the last six matches, the Bluebirds are proving hard to beat. But that run includes includes four stalemates including a 0-0 at Blackburn and three successive 1-1 draws against Bournemouth, Middlesbrough and Derby.

Cardiff were beaten 3-2 at QPR on Saturday, conceding in added time having drawn level after with five minutes remaining thanks to a Joe Ralls double.

They returned to winning ways in emphatic fashion on Tuesday night with a 3-0 home win over Barnsley. Junior Hoilett, Ralls and Harry Wilson got the goals in the victory.

Cardiff Team News


It looks like an unchanged squad for Cardiff, who have on-loan defenders Jordi Osei-Tutu and Filip Benkovic, left-back Greg Cunningham and forward Isaac Vassell still out injured.

Bristol City Form


Bristol City's season hit the buffers during a run of five games without a win. Dean Holden's side hit top spot on the back of perfect start to the season, but slipped to mid-table after failing to win any of their next five games.

A 2-2 draw at Barnsley was followed by a 1-0 loss at home to Middlesbrough and a 1-1 draw against Swansea at Ashton Gate.

The winless run continued with defeats to two of last season's Premier League teams as the Robins lost 1-0 to Bournemouth and 3-1 to Norwich in the space of five days. 

But Bristol City ended the search for a win on Tuesday night as late goals Jay Dasilva and Jamie Paterson sealed a come-from-behind 2-1 win.

Bristol City Team News 


Bristol City will still be without defenders Alfie Mawson and Nathan Baker as well as midfielders Joe Williams and Liam Walsh.

Forward Andreas Weimann has been ruled out for the rest of the season with an ACL injury.
