Cardiff City vs Sheffield United Prediction and Betting Tips | November 12th 2022

West Bromwich Albion v Sheffield United - Sky Bet Championship
Sheffield United will face Cardiff on Saturday - Sky Bet Championship

Cardiff City will host Sheffield United at the Cardiff City Stadium on Saturday afternoon in another round of EFL Championship football.

The home side have had their struggles this season with caretaker manager Mark Hudson working hard to steady the ship. They were beaten 3-2 by struggling Hull City in their last league outing and were a goal up just after the hour mark before conceding a quickfire double late in the game.

Cardiff City sit 18th in the league table with 24 points from 20 games. They will aim to return to winning ways when they play this weekend.

Sheffield United have found good form after their poor run of results in October. However, they saw their promotion charge take a hit last time out as they suffered a shock 1-0 home defeat to newly-promoted Rotherham United and will be gutted to have come away with nothing after being the dominant side for much of the game.

The visitors sit third in the Championship standings with 35 points picked up so far and will be hopeful of adding to that tally on Saturday.
