Sunday afternoon’s sole Premier League fixture sees Cardiff City take on Burnley at the Cardiff City Stadium.

The Bluebirds go in to the game joint-bottom of the table, with an identical record to Huddersfield Town after six games played.

A first win of the season here would see them leapfrog their opponents while they could climb out of the relegation should other results also fall in their favour.

Lee Peltier dislocated his shoulder in last weekend’s defeat to Manchester City and will be out for at least three months and Aaron Gunnarson is also sidelined though Sol Bamba may return in defence.

Bobby Reid is 7.5 (13/2) to open the scoring with Bet Victor, with Junior Hoillet a 10.5 (19/2) chance with the same firm.

The home win is widely available at 2.7 (17/10) with the visitors as highly priced as 3.1 (21/10) offer from Betfair, with the draw the same price with most bookmakers.

The Clarets recorded their first win of the season last weekend, thumping Bournemouth by four goals to nil though they followed that result by crashing out of the EFL Cup to League One Burton Albion on Tuesday evening.

Steven Defour may be involved after making his first appearance since January midweek though Ben Gibson and Robbie Brady won’t feature due to injury.

Chris Wood is 5.5 (9/2) to get the first goal of the game, with Matej Vydra a 7.0 (6/1) shot with Bet Victor.
The sides last faced each other in the Championship three seasons ago with both meetings that term ending all square.

Seven of the last nine clashes between the two have ended in draws so you may be tempted to back the 1-1 scoreline at 6.5 (11/2) with Bet Victor.

Betfair offer a price of 2.1 (11/10) for both teams to score in the game while you can bet on their being a goal in both halves of the game at 2.2 (6/5) with Bet Victor.

Alternatively, you may fancy both of these sides to be relegated at the end of the season along with the side currently bottom of the table – Huddersfield Town at a price of 7.0 (6/1) with Sky Bet.
