Sunderland vs Cardiff Predictions

  • Cardiff are on a run of two Championship away defeats without scoring.
  • Half of Sunderland’s league wins this season have been by a single goal.
  • Tony Mowbray has only lost twice in the league against Cardiff as a manager (W8, D6).

Back the Black Cats to pick up a vital three points

Sunderland stopped a three-game winless run with a 2-0 victory at Huddersfield in midweek despite not being at their very best.

Buoyed by the return of the attack-minded Jack Clarke from suspension, Tony Mowbray’s men look to make it back-to-back league wins for the first time since their return to the second-tier.

Mowbray knows this opposition well and has tasted defeat just twice from his 16 personal Championship clashes with the Bluebirds on the touchline. In fact, it’s almost ten years to the day since his last defeat against them, a 1-0 defeat in November 2012 as the Middlesbrough boss.

Cardiff continue to sleepwalk into trouble

Cardiff enter this clash after painfully losing 2-1 to Watford in midweek despite having scored the opening goal. That was their fourth defeat across the last five league games and leaves the managerless club sitting dangerously close to the drop zone.

Things don’t get much better for Cardiff when playing away, with six defeats across their nine away league games providing a major cause for concern ahead of this trip to the North East.

With home advantage and momentum on their side, Sunderland should have what it takes to come out on top against Cardiff. For smaller stakes, we’re going for a slender 2-1 win for Mowbray’s Black Cats.
