Updated Friday, 19th December 2008
This week FootyMad's match preview focuses on the game between Cardiff City and Sheffield Wednesday at 15:00 on Saturday, 20th December 2008 in the Championship.
Cardiff City prepare to entertain Sheffield Wednesday at Ninian Park on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Bluebirds are clearly on top, having won 16 and lost only 6 of the 28 games.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at Ninian Park was less than a year ago, in January 2008, the Bluebirds carving out a narrow 1-0 victory in a Championship match.
