History of the Coventry City v Cardiff City fixture

Cardiff City face a trip to Coventry City at Coventry Arena on Tuesday evening, and have come away with little in previous meetings, having been beaten a depressing 13 out of 19 times.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was just last season, in February 2007, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2 - 2 draw in a Championship match.
