It’s hard to be confident about Cardiff winning any Premier League match considering that Fulham are the only side that they’ve beaten this term and everyone is putting goals past the Cottagers.

The Welsh side have also secured a point against Huddersfield and Newcastle although every other match has ended in defeat including last weekend’s 1-0 reverse against Leicester where they were edged out of a close encounter.

Neil Warnock is brutally honest that his team are big underdogs in the top flight this year although a side like Cardiff can afford to lose the lion’s share of their games and still stay up.

After all, City are surrounded by other teams who have a low points total and a victory over the Seagulls would see Cardiff out of the bottom three and having some hope that they can avoid the drop.

Brighton are a robust team who must be difficult to play against. They have fourteen points from eleven played and recently enjoyed a three-match winning run which is virtually unprecedented for a team of their stature.

It’s easy to forget that the Seagulls are only into their second season in the top flight, with that recent winning run coming in the form of three successive 1-0 wins and the same approach will be taken in this clash.

Glen Murray continues to enjoy a renaissance in a blue-and-white shirt, with Messrs Duffy and Dunk operating in front of impressive goalkeeper Matt Ryan, with the Australian one of the safest pair of hands.

It all points to a tight encounter between these sides and no quarter given in a quest for a maximum haul, with No Goalscorer a possible runner although we’ll take Under 1.5 Goals which also covers 1-0 to either team.
