Recent respective form guides
Portsmouth's dreadful home form has resulted in just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. Pompey have conceded a disappointing 6 goals in this period, and managed to convert only 1 of their own chances.
Cardiff City's away form is none too clever either, unbeaten in their last six, consisting of three wins and three draws. Just 7 goals have scored in these games, though to be fair only a measly 3 have been let in at the wrong end.

Cardiff City lie just outside the playoff positions in the npower Championship, picking up 7 from their 4 games so far.
