Out-of-form Cardiff City will be hoping to return to winning ways tonight when they face Preston North End at the Cardiff City Stadium.

The Bluebirds have slipped out of the automatic promotion places after back-to-back defeats against Bolton Wanderers and Fulham.

However, they’ll take confidence from an unbeaten home record against Preston dating back to 2004.

Neil Warnock’s men are 11/10 to collect all three points, with the visitors priced at 13/5. You can back the draw at 11/5.

Regardless of the result, there should be goals aplenty.

Cardiff have bagged 22 at home so far this season and were involved in a six-goal thriller on Boxing Day.

In total there have been 17 goals scored in the Bluebirds’ last five home matches.

It’s 6/5 for there to be Over 2.5 Goals this evening, although we like the look of Over 3.5 at 3/1.

With goals expected, there’s going to need to be goalscorers.

Junior Hoilett has bagged six times so far this season and is 21/10 to score Anytime.

We go 11/2 that he nets the first goal in the contest.

For the visitors, Jordan Hugill looks the most likely candidate, also at 21/10.

Dipping into the #GetAPrice market, Paul Huntingdon has been booked eight times this season and looks value at 6/4 to be carded again this evening.

Meanwhile, it’s 9/2 for Kenneth Zohore to have 3+ shots, Joe Ralls to win 3+ tackles and Cardiff to win.

In terms of scorelines, Cardiff have won 3-1 at home on three occasions so far this season.

It’s a tasty 18/1 for that outcome to ring true once more.
