Cardiff City will hope to continue their recent resurgence when they host Blackpool in the Championship on Saturday afternoon.
The Bluebirds have pulled away from relegation danger over the last few weeks and sit 19th in the table, six points behind the Tangerines who are 15th
Cardiff were only one point above the relegation zone three weeks ago, but a run of four wins in five matches means that they are now 14 points clear of the drop.
The Bluebirds’ latest victory came on Tuesday night as second half goals from Joel Bagan and Mark Harris secured a 2-0 home win over Coventry City.
Steve Morison’s team have now won three successive matches at the Cardiff City Stadium, but bottom club Barnsley remain the only side in the Championship to have earned fewer points on home turf this season.
Cardiff have won four of their last five matches against Blackpool and claimed a 2-0 victory at Bloomfield Road earlier this season.
Blackpool travel to south Wales having won just three times away from home this season following promotion from League One last year.

Neil Critchley’s team have failed to win any of their last seven matches on the road since beating Sheffield United at the end of October.

That was Blackpool’s first defeat in six league matches, but has left them eight points behind the playoffs with a third of the season remaining
