History of the Cardiff City v Wimbledon fixture

Cardiff City play host to Wimbledon at Ninian Park on Saturday afternoon, hoping to break their duck against the visitors. Out of their two previous meetings, the Bluebirds have drawn one game and lost the other.

The last time the two teams met at Cardiff City was just over four years ago, in September 1999, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1-1 final scoreline in a League Cup match.
