Failing to score for the first time since the 4-0 defeat to Leeds United on February 13, Swansea did not breach the net of Bristol City last time out, and centre-back Rob Dickie was able to score the match-winning goal in the final 20 minutes.

Since the arrival of former Notts County manager Luke Williams to replace the sacked Michael Duff in early January, the Swans have won just three of 11 Championship matches, with the standout result being a 1-0 victory over Hull City in the middle of February.

As is the congested nature of the Championship season, Swansea are just five points ahead of 22nd-placed Huddersfield Town ahead of this weekend’s round of fixtures, with the 15-point gap to sixth all but confirming that they will not be playing playoff football in May.

Determined to make a late – and largely unexpected – charge for this season’s playoffs, Cardiff City have now posted four straight wins in the Championship after dramatically beating Ipswich Town at the Cairdiff City Stadium last weekend.

Winning each of their last four Championship matches by a single goal, the Bluebirds are finally finding themselves on the right side of the second tier’s tight margins, with the run of one win in seven between January and February now a distant memory for a team with the top six in their sights.

Erol Bulut’s side currently occupy 11th position in the Championship standings, sitting just five points behind sixth-placed Norwich City and 10 points ahead of Swansea, who are languishing in 15th.

Swansea City vs. Cardiff City Head to head

In the 28 previous meetings between these two teams, Swansea have claimed 15 victories while Cardiff have won seven, and they have drawn in six. Cardiff have scored 22 goals and conceded 41 in the process.

Swansea City Team News

Enduring an injury-riddled loan spell from West Ham United, Harrison Ashby remains in the Swansea medical room due to a muscle strain picked up in early February.

Josh Ginnelly has only managed six appearances in the Championship for Swansea since making the switch from Hearts in the summer, with the 26-year-old struggling due to a muscle injury.

Cardiff City Team News

Cardiff are coping marvellously well without the services of influential defender Mark McGuinness, who is expected back next month from a hamstring injury.

Liverpool loanee Nat Phillips and Greek Dimitrios Goutas have struck up a good partnership in the McGuinness’ absence, and Bulut should field that due on Saturday.
