Click Jake's image to enter

Just look at the home and away table. Two wins, a draw and six defeats at home, nine goals scored but 21 shipped. What a catastrophic home record for any professional football side.

Don't worry if you support Cardiff: we'll find something to suit your tastes if you win

Preston North End vs SAFC Guess the Score: the deep end at Deepdale

Click on the image above, post your scoreline prediction and - whoever you support - you may win a prize

What is left to say? Another game, another sense of trepidation or, if Pete Sixsmith was right in his clinical assessment of our plight after his bleak evening at Portman Road, another reason to be “largely past caring”.
