History of the Leicester City v Cardiff City fixture

Cardiff City face a trip to Leicester City at Walkers Stadium on Saturday afternoon, 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 most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in January 2006, with Cardiff City inflicting a narrow 1 - 2 defeat upon the Foxes in a Championship match.
