The Bluebirds have not had a good campaign so far, with seven losses in ten games leaving them 18th in the league. Steve Morison will be looking for much improvement on their last performance where they lost 1-0 to a struggling Huddersfield Town, despite having 68% possession in the game.
That left Cardiff with just one win in their last five outings which is looking increasingly like relegation form, something which will need to change quickly if they are to avoid a repeat of last season’s finish. They do head into this clash against Burnley as outsiders, with bookies giving odds of 19/10 for the home win.
Vincent Kompany’s Burnley have picked up after a shaky start to the season with three wins from their last five games. The Clarets sit fourth in the table with seventeen points and impressively, have only lost once this season.
Last time out they edged a tight encounter against Bristol City, winning 2-1 against Nigel Pearson’s side. Kompany will be hoping for a similar outcome this weekend and they do head to the Cardiff City Stadium as strong favourites to get all three points, with bookies giving them odds of 11/8 to win the game.
