THE PREDICTION

Both these sides suffered disappointing two goal defeats in their respective opening games and will be desperate to bounce back here. This could lead to a turgid encounter, with each side making sure not to lose the game due to any silly errors. The absence of Lee Tomlin will be a massive blow for Cardiff and it’s difficult to see them scoring against a Forest defence usually known for its strength. In what should be a low scoring match, the home side may well edge it by a single goal.
