Cardiff City play host to Nottingham Forest at Ninian Park on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Bluebirds are clearly on top, having won 10 and lost only 2 of the 16 games.
The last time the two teams met at Cardiff City was amazingly over twenty years ago, in November 1976, as the visitors ran out cosy 0-3 winners in a Second Division match.
