History of the Burnley v Cardiff City fixture

Cardiff City face a trip to Burnley at Turf Moor on Monday afternoon, 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 8 of the 34 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was just last season, in September 2005, when they fought out a thrilling high-scoring 3 - 3 draw in a Championship match.

Recent respective form guides

Burnley have only collected 1 win and 3 draws from the last six home games played. The goals for column just outweighs the goals against over this period, 6 to 4.

Cardiff City's away form is none too clever either, seeing them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While the Bluebirds have hit 7 goals, 10 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Burnley find themselves struggling down in 17th position in the league having picked up 48 points from their 40 matches. Cardiff City's 63 points from 41 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 9th position.
