FootyMad attempt to assist you with their form guide as Blackpool take on Cardiff City in a Championship match on Saturday, 4th October 2008 at 12:30.
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.
