Match Preview

Though unbeaten in the last ten league H2Hs (W6, D4), Cardiff may be forced to bide their time here. Three of Cardiff’s four league goals to this point have come after half-time, but correcting the fact that they possess the joint-worst defence ahead of the round (2.33 conceded per match on average) is their primary concern.
Even so, it should be noted that opening the scoring is no guarantee of success where Cardiff are concerned, with the ‘Bluebirds’ conceding an equaliser on two of three occasions where they have taken a lead so far.
Meanwhile, each of Huddersfield’s three league outings (D1, L2) have seen both teams score, with Huddersfield blowing a lead in their only away match so far. Furthermore, a Huddersfield squad has beaten opponents managed by Neil Warnock just once in the last seven attempts (W1, D3, L3).
Overall, Huddersfield are currently 290 minutes of play without a goal against a Warnock-managed side. Huddersfield’s discipline in recent encounters leaves much to be desired too, with teams representing the ‘Terriers’ receiving a red card in two of the last three H2Hs.
Players to watch: Cardiff centre-half Aden Flint scored the opening goal of the Bluebirds’ home campaign with a header. The 6’4 defender scored eight goals in the 2017/18 campaign.
Huddersfield hitman Karlan Grant has scored all three of his side’s Championship goals this season, with two coming from the penalty spot.
Stat attack: Five of Cardiff’s seven conceded league goals have come after the break.
These account for 72.73% of total goals scored in the second half of Cardiff’s league games.
Two of Huddersfield’s three league games of 2019/20 have been goalless at half-time.
