The Bluebirds come into this fixture after a goalless away draw against Chris Hughton's Norwich City. Malky Mackay and his men had a good start in the Premier League, defeating Manchester City at home.

However, Cardiff have managed just one Premier League win since their victory over the Citizens. In fact, the Bluebirds have just one win in their last eight games in all competitions. They sit one point above the relegation zone, with nine points from nine games.

Meanwhile, Michael Laudrup's Swansea enter this fixture after a goalless home draw against West Ham United.

The visitors have lost only one of their last five fixtures in all competitions. Swansea sit 12th in the league table with 11 points from nine games and victory over Cardiff could put them in the top half of the table.

What the Managers Say

Malky Mackay: "It's the first time we've played in the top level and that's special for everyone in south Wales. It's only three points. It's another Premier League team coming to the stadium, but there is a lot of importance attached to the game."

Michael Laudrup: "All the players will know how important it is. When you walk around in the city, people, even a couple of weeks before, start talking about the game. I do know a lot about derbies. All fans feel that their derby is something special."

"I always heard that when I came to a new place - 'this derby is the special one, the biggest one'. They all say that."
