Cardiff City prepare to entertain Wolverhampton Wanderers at Ninian Park at tea-time on Saturday, needing to improve on a poor record between the sides. The visitors have won 9 of the 24 previous games, with the Bluebirds winning just 6.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at Ninian Park was less than a year ago, in February 2008, with Cardiff City running out comfortable 2-0 winners in a F.A. Cup match.
