Footymad preview History of the Wolverhampton Wanderers v Cardiff City fixture

Cardiff City travel to take on Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux on Sunday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Bluebirds will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them ending up on the losing side in more than half of the games played between the two.

The last time the two teams met at Wolverhampton Wanderers was just over four years ago, in February 2009, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2-2 draw in a Championship match.
