Bluebirds to fly to victory
Although Cardiff lost their last game, it's worth noting that they played against Liverpool, one of the best teams in the World; Steve Morison's men have won their last two league games. On the other hand, Peterborough have struggled to win games in the Championship; they are without a win in their last five games, and they've lost four of those games. Also, Peterborough have been the worst road team in the Championship; they've won just one of 14 games they've played away from home, and they've lost 12 of those games. With this in mind, we're predicting a win for Cardiff.
An entertaining game
Peterborough have not been very good at keeping the goals out; they've conceded in eight of their last nine games across all competitions. It's fair to point out that their only clean sheet in that stretch was in the FA Cup; Peterborough have conceded in all of their last seven, and 16 of their last 17 league games. Conversely, Peterborough have scored their fair share of goals; they've found the net in six of their last eight games. Similarly, Cardiff have kept just one clean sheet in their last 29 games; they've also scored in six of their last seven games. Also, both teams scored in all of the last six encounters between these teams; considering both teams found the net in four of Cardiff's last six games, both teams should score.

Cardiff vs Peterborough: It's predicted lineup time
Peterborough occupy the final relegation spot as the current time and trail Cardiff by nine points. If they win this game and their game in hand then it will start to look rather bleak for the Bluebirds. By contrast, if Cardiff can put 12 points between them and the drop zone then the end to the season might be comfortable.
Cardiff Predicted Lineup
Cardiff's FA Cup campaign ended at Anfield last weekend, now they have just the league to focus on. Steve Morison's men are 20th on the Championship table, just two spots above the relegation zone; they'll hope to add some more points to their tally as Peterborough come visiting.
Predicted lineup – Phillips, McGuiness, Flint, Denham, Bagan, Vaulks, Pack, King, Ng, Collins, Harris
Peterborough Predicted Lineup
Peterborough advanced to the fifth round of the FA Cup by knocking out QPR last weekend; unfortunately, Peterborough's last two wins were in the FA Cup, they haven't done too well in the Championship lately. Darren Ferguson's men are in the relegation zone, and they have no wins in their last five league games; will they be able to put an end to that unwanted streak?
Predicted lineup – Benda, Kent, Edwards, Beevers, Ward, Fuchs, Norburn, Mumba, Poku, Clarke-Harris, Marriott
