Live on Skysports 1: Thurs 19.45: West Ham are 7/4 with Stan James to overcome Cardiff in the pair’s Championship play-off clash.

West Ham are Skybet’s 7/4 favourites to win the Championship play-offs and they can move a step closer to that goal by picking up a positive result in their semi-final first leg clash against Cardiff.

The Hammers almost gained automatic promotion, finishing ten points ahead of fourth-placed Birmingham so on paper they’re the best team in the competition and having beaten the Bluebirds 2-0 at the Cardiff City Stadium less than two months ago, Sam Allardyce’s charges can head to South Wales in confident mood.

They’re 7/4 with Stan James to pick up a vital victory and 23/10 via Betfred for a decent draw while Blue Square make them 1/2 to put themselves in the driving seat by registering either result and BetVictor chalk 4/7 against the Hammers eventually qualifying for the final.

However, it could be worth going out on a limb and siding with the visitors in the first encounter. Allardyce’s charges have been strong on the road all season and come up against a Bluebirds outfit not exactly firing on all cylinders on their own patch.

Subsequently, in a potentially cagey affair, Stan James’ 17/2 for the Hammers to grab the only goal provides an eye catching alternative to a flutter on an away win.
