The game between Cardiff City and Norwich City in the Championship on Saturday, 9th February 2008 at 12:00 takes centre stage for FootyMad's preview analysis.
Cardiff City prepare to entertain Norwich City at Ninian Park at lunchtime on Saturday, and hold the advantage on previous meetings between the two. Of the 20 games played, Bluebirds have recorded 10 wins, and Norwich City have come away with 7 victories.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at Ninian Park was less than a year ago, in March 2007, the Bluebirds carving out a narrow 1-0 victory in a Championship match.
