Match Preview

Expect a show from Cardiff who remain unbeaten at home in the Championship with the joint-best home record of any side after five home games (W4, D1). Moreover, the hosts have scored the opening goal in all five of those fixtures, four of which were netted before half-time.
Home boss Neil Warnock will no doubt fear a draw though, considering ten of his 20 all-time H2Hs with Sheffield Wednesday have ended in stalemate (W7, D10, L3). Four of the last five draws ended 1-1, with Warnock’s side conceding the opener in two of the previous three games that finished via that scoreline.
On the other hand, Wednesday’s Garry Monk is winless in four clashes with Warnock (D1, L3), with three of those games producing under 2.5 match goals. However, Monk is currently overseeing a better 11-game start for the ‘Owls’ than in any of their previous seven second-tier seasons.
Furthermore, the visitors have seen just one goalless first half on their travels, with the first half of their away league games averaging 1.5 match goals per fixture. Though Wednesday have scored the opener in seven of their 11 Championship games so far (63.54%), they can struggle when facing a deficit, scoring just one equaliser from the four occasions in which they fell behind.
Players to watch: Cardiff’s Danny Ward could be in line for a start after scoring three goals across his last three substitute appearances.
Wednesday’s Steven Fletcher (five goals) has featured with a first-half strike in each of their last two away league victories.
Stat attack: Cardiff have scored at least twice in each of their last three league matches.
Cardiff have been shown an average of two bookings per match across the last six league H2Hs.
Wednesday are the joint-most booked Championship side (2.36 bookings per match average).
