Cardiff City vs Huddersfield Town Prediction

Cardiff City and Huddersfield Town are separated by one point, with Cardiff City sitting one place behind Huddersfield Town in the league table. The Bluebirds finished fifth in the league last time around, and will have to find form soon in order to ensure that they replicate that kind of finish this season.

Huddersfield Town, like Cardiff City, have been inconsistent this season. Carlos Corberan, who was appointed as manager in the summer, has some good players to work with, including midfielder Carel Eiting, on loan from Ajax, and attacker Josh Koroma.

Both teams have enjoyed similar form this season, but Cardiff City could just edge past Huddersfield Town on Tuesday

Prediction: Cardiff City 2-1 Huddersfield Town
