Bristol City face Cardiff in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday, live on Sky Sports Football.
Bristol City have slipped from play-off contention since the restart, with three successive defeats to Blackburn, Sheffield Wednesday and most recently Nottingham Forest, who earned a 1-0 win at the City Ground on Wednesday.
Cardiff, meanwhile, have won two and drawn one so far. They started with a surprise 2-0 win over Leeds, before beating Preston 3-1 at Deepdale and then being held to a stalemate by Charlton in midweek.
Bristol City are looking to complete a league double over Cardiff for the first time since the 2002-03 season.
Cardiff have lost two of their last three league games against Bristol City (W1), as many as they had lost in their previous 15 league games against the Robins (W10 D3 L2).
Cardiff have lost only twice in their last 14 Championship matches (W6 D6), going unbeaten in their last five (W3 D2).
Bristol City are winless in their last eight league games (D2 L6), their longest run without a victory since January 2017 (9 games).
Bristol City striker Nahki Wells has been directly involved in six goals in his last three league starts against Cardiff (4 goals, 2 assists), netting a hat-trick earlier this season for QPR against the Bluebirds.
Three defeats on the spin for Bristol City, and it’s looking like another sign of being close but not being quite there under Lee Johnson.
Cardiff’s momentum was halted by Charlton in midweek, but they are still in pole position for the play-offs as they occupy sixth. It is up to them not to let it go, and I don’t think they will on Saturday.
David Prutton predicts: 1-2 (8/1 with Sky Bet)
