Cardiff City prepare to entertain Derby County at Ninian Park on Tuesday evening, looking to continue an impressive record. The Bluebirds are clearly on top, having won 13 and lost only 3 of the 23 games.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at Ninian Park was less than a year ago, in April 2009, when they eased past their opponents in a high-scoring 4-1 thriller, in a Championship match.
