新城堡’s opponents this weekend are lowly Cardiff 和 the Magpies should be feeling pretty positive about extending their lead at the top. Brighton have a relatively tricky tie away to Bristol City (who sit in sixth) 和 if they lose, 新城堡 could open up a six point gap with a victory over Cardiff.
If we were to go by what history tells us, this should be a pretty routine win for the Magpies; 新城堡 have won their last eight games against the Bluebirds in a run which stretches all the way back to 1981. To add to this, Cardiff City have lost their 16 of the last 17 away league trips to St. James’公园;他们唯一一次获胜是在1963年。
新城堡’在所有比赛中，S的表现一直很出色，连续七次获胜。加的夫市’s form, 上 the other hand, has been up 和 down with three losses, two wins 和 a draw from their last six games. Whilst 新城堡 are the highest scorers in the league with 32 goals, Cardiff are the second lowest with 上 ly 13 goals. This is all pointing towards a comfortable 新城堡 win.
If 新城堡 go 上 to beat Cardiff (making it EIGHT wins in a row), it will be their joint longest run of victories since between March 和 April of 2010. Giving their current form, we are backing them to achieve just that!
