David Prutton has predicted a share of the spoils in the huge Championship clash between first and second on Friday night.

Cardiff are currently in second, six points behind leaders Wolves, but they have a game in hand and a victory could effectively bring the two side’s level.

Fulham and Villa, third and fourth respectively, will be hoping for a draw, or for Cardiff to slip up.

And the Sky pundit thinks the former is the most likely result, although he’s predicting goals.

Writing in his column for Sky Sports, Prutton said: “What a game this is set to be live on Sky Sports on Friday night.

“Cardiff are expecting a big crowd in and, while these two sides are the clear favourites to win promotion, this game could go a long way to deciding both of their fates.

“Cardiff need the win more or the gap between themselves and Fulham could start to become uncomfortably close, but Wolves will want to get back to winning ways after that slip against Hull in midweek. This, however, is a draw for me.”

Football Insider verdict:

What a way to start off a brilliant weekend of football. Neither team will want to lose this and although it will suit Wolves better, both sides would probably settle for a draw. Either way though there’ll be lots of excitement in Wales under the floodlights. We think Prutton has got this one spot on for what it’s worth, and we’re expecting goals, excitement and a share of the spoils which will take both sides one step closer to the Premier League.
