Cardiff City face a trip to Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough 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 lose 15 and win only 5 of the 26 games.
The most recent encounter between these two sides was just last season, in November 2006, when they played out a goalless draw in a Championship match.
