Overall in all English competitions, the Swans have a slight edge with 18 wins to 16 while 15 encounters have ended in draws.

Swansea's last win at Ninian Park was in 1997 when they triumphed 1-0 whilst Cardiff's last victory (excluding Welsh competitions) was in 1993 – a very infamous game – when they won 1-0.

In 26 previous meetings at Ninian Park, Cardiff have won 13 to the Swans 5 but just one of the last 8 meetings at the ground have resulted in a home victory.

Cardiff'c biggest victory at Ninian was 5-0 back in 1965 whilst a 3-1 win for the Swans in 1996 was their best win on their rivals patch.
