History of the Blackpool v Cardiff City fixture

Cardiff City face a trip to Blackpool at Bloomfield Road at lunchtime on Saturday, and have come away with little in previous meetings, having been beaten a depressing 22 out of 30 times.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in December 2007, with Cardiff City inflicting a narrow 0 - 1 defeat upon the Seasiders in a Championship match.
