Wycombe Wanderers are set to play hosts to Cardiff City at Adams Park on Wednesday in their latest EFL Championship fixture.
Wycombe Wanderers come into this game on the back of a 2-1 loss to Bristol City at Ashton Gate. Goals from Scotland international Chris Martin and Senegalese striker Famara Diedhiou ensured victory for Bristol City. Winger Garath McCleary scored the consolation goal for Wycombe Wanderers.
Cardiff City, on the other hand, lost 3-2 to Thomas Frank's Brentford yesterday at the Cardiff City Stadium. A second-half hat-trick from Spanish winger Sergi Canos secured the win for the Bees, as Will Vaulks' brace proved to be a mere consolation for Cardiff City.

Wycombe Wanderers vs Cardiff City Prediction
Wycombe Wanderers did well to get promoted from League One and have given a good impression of themselves in the Championship so far. Despite sitting at the bottom of the league table, the Chairboys have shown that they are no pushovers and could have been a little higher in the table with a little luck.
Cardiff City, on the other hand, sit 12th in the league table. The absence of key attacker Kieffer Moore has proved to be crucial, while more will be expected from Welsh winger Harry Wilson, who is on loan from Liverpool.
Cardiff City should be able to emerge victorious, but Wycombe Wanderers are not pushovers and are unlikely to go down without a fight.
Prediction: Wycombe Wanderers 1-2 Cardiff City
