Crystal Palace prepare to entertain Cardiff City at Selhurst Park at lunchtime on Saturday, looking to continue an impressive record. The Eagles are clearly on top, having won 18 and lost only 4 of the 28 games.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at Selhurst Park was less than a year ago, in April 2009, as the visitors ran out cosy 0-2 winners in a Championship match.
