Wimbledon play host to Cardiff City at National Hockey Stadium on Saturday afternoon, aiming to preserve their record of never having lost at home to the visitors. The Dons won the only previous game contested between the two.

The only previous meeting between Wimbledon and Cardiff City at was well over fifteen years ago, back in May 1985, the Dons carving out a narrow 2-1 victory in a Second Division match.

Recent respective form guides

Wimbledon's dreadful home form has resulted in just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While Dons have scored 8, a worringly large 15 have been leaked at the other end.

Cardiff City's away form is none too clever either, seeing them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. The Bluebirds's have scored 9 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 11.

Wimbledon find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 18 games have yielded only 13 points. Cardiff City's 27 points from 17 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 9th position.
