Cardiff City face a trip to Wigan Athletic at JJB Stadium on Tuesday evening, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Bluebirds will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 5 and win only 1 of the 9 games.
The most recent encounter between these two sides was just last season, in October 2002, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2 - 2 draw in a League Division Two match.
