THE PREDICTION

Cardiff’s remarkable run under new boss Mick McCarthy continued at the weekend after they thrashed Preston 4-0 at the Cardiff City Stadium. The Bluebirds have picked up 17 points from a possible 21 since McCarthy has been in charge and the visitors have every reason to be confident here against Bournemouth. The Cherries come into this match off the back of a defeat away to QPR, although they have won their last two games at home. Both squads are stacked and as such a close encounter is in prospect. When taking into the account the attacking strength of both sides on paper, both teams to score looks extremely likely here regardless of who comes out on top.
