History of the Burnley v Cardiff City fixture

Cardiff pack their bags to visit Burnley at Turf Moor at lunchtime on Saturday, 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 previous match played between the two at Turf Moor was more than three years back, in December 1999, the Clarets carving out a narrow 2 - 1 victory in a League Division Two match.
