Ian Holloway predicts Cardiff v Leeds

Cardiff City and Leeds United will face each other in the Championship this evening.

Former Queens Park Rangers and Crystal Palace manager Ian Holloway has told Sky Sports that Cardiff City will win against Leeds United at home today.

Cardiff will take on Leeds at the Cardiff City Stadium in the Championship this evening.

Holloway has predicted the Bluebirds to pick up all three points from the encounter courtesy of a 2-1 victory.

“Good gracious me, Cardiff have snuck up on everybody, have they not?!” the former Leicester City boss told Sky Sports.

“If they were a horse, you would have to have a look to see if they were invisible…! But to sneak up on the rails like they have and to keep winning is absolutely brilliant.

"Meanwhile, Leeds had a great result the other day, which I did not see coming, a fantastic 2-1 victory. However, I think Cardiff will just win this one 2-1.”

Cardiff are playing well at the moment and are in the running for a top-six finish in the Championship this season.

The Welsh outfit are currently seventh in the league table with 55 points from 35 matches, level on points with sixth-placed Sheffield Wednesday.

Russell Slade’s side will be confident of winning against Leeds and maintaining their charge towards the playoffs.

Leeds returned to winning ways in the Championship at the weekend, getting the better of Bolton Wanderers 2-1 at Elland Road.

Steve Evans’s side will head into this evening’s match with confidence, but the most they can expect is a draw.
