Sunderland vs Cardiff City match preview

Two sides brimming with confidence at present are set to lock horns in a Championship clash at the Stadium of Light this Sunday, September 24th.

The matchup in question will see Sunderland act as hosts, in a meeting with Cardiff City.

Beginning with the former, Sunderland currently stand as one of the standout sides in England’s 2nd tier.

Since being condemned to a trio of defeats across all competitions to open the campaign, the Black Cats have gone unbeaten in five, a stretch including a quartet of wins.

Three such victories, meanwhile, have come on the bounce, the most recent in midweek, at the expense of Blackburn Rovers.

After making the trip to Ewood Park, a Jack Clarke double either side of Dan Neil’s finish late in the first-half proved enough to guide Tony Mowbray’s troops to the right side of a 3-1 result.

As alluded to above, though, Sunday’s hosts are not the only ones set to head into this afternoon’s action with spirits high in the camp.

This comes with Cardiff City having also enjoyed a timely upturn in fortunes of late.

After stumbling their way through the early weeks of the term, Cardiff have since gotten things firmly on track, courtesy of three Championship wins from their last four.

After marking the club’s return post-international break with a South Wales Derby downing of Swansea City, the Bluebirds followed up with a meeting with Coventry City in midweek.

And, once more, Erol Bulut’s men made home advantage count, thanking goals from Dimitrios Goutas, Karlan Grant, and Kion Etete for an eventual 3-2 triumph.

Cardiff, in turn, have surged clear of the relegation scrap, to the top half of the table.

We at 101, though, envision the Welsh giants’ strong run coming to an end this evening, backing hosts Sunderland to ultimately prove too much come the full-time whistle at the Stadium of Light.
