Footymad preview History of the Charlton Athletic v Cardiff City fixture

Cardiff City pack their bags to visit Charlton Athletic at The Valley on Tuesday evening, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Bluebirds will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 19 and win only 4 of the 34 games.

The previous match played between the two at The Valley was more than three years back, in April 2009, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2-2 draw in a Championship match.
