Previous encounters: Cardiff City

Cardiff isn’t a place Burnley have ever enjoyed much. It is now nine visits since the Clarets have tasted victory in the Welsh city, writes James Bird.

Last time out

Away draws were a rarity under Eddie Howe, just four in total, but last season Cardiff City Stadium saw one of them. Cardiff were looking to get back into the play-off places but failed to test Lee Grant all day. Ross Wallace and Martin Paterson had chances for the Clarets in a poor first half but David Marshall kept them at bay.

One for us

The Clarets last won at Cardiff in April 2000. They were 2-1 winners that day at Ninian Park as Steve Davis and Andy Payton got the goals. The home side’s goal came courtesy of an Ian Cox own goal. Burnley would do the double over the Bluebirds that season with Claret players scoring all six goals as Mitchell Thomas scored an own goal in another 2-1 win at Turf Moor.

Cardiff City 1 – 2 Burnley. 01 April 2000. Division Two

One for them

A game where nothing occurred for the most part until it came alive 15 minutes from time. Jay Boothroyd put Cardiff ahead on 74 minutes before Darren Purse played Robbie Blake in with a terrible backpass for Burnley to equalise on 84 minutes. Ross McCormack would seal all three points for the home side though with a late brace in the final five minutes of time.

Cardiff City 3 – 1 Burnley. 13 April 2009.
