The final Championship game of the weekend sees Cardiff and Swansea facing off in the South Wales derby.

Cardiff vs Swansea: H2H
The two outfits have faced off 67 times throughout history.
Swansea have emerged victorious from 28 of those ties with Cardiff picking up 22 wins. The remaining 17 fixtures ended as draws.
It is also the Swans who are currently in better form in England’s second division.
Swansea currently sit 6th in the Championship, winning three of their last five league outings. The latest of which was a 1-0 victory over Charlton.
However, heading into week 27 of the Championship season, there were just three points separating Swansea from 11th place.
So, they can’t really afford to slip up if they wish to clinch a playoff spot this term.
As for Cardiff, they are down in 12th place, four points adrift of their bitter rivals.
And while the Bluebirds did experience a bit of an upturn in form after the departure of Neil Warnock, they have now won just one of their last five Championship outings.
Granted, three of those ties ended as draws but their last league outing saw them comprehensively beaten 6-1 by 15th place QPR on January 1st.
Cardiff were also held to a 2-2 draw by lower-league opposition Carlisle in the FA Cup 3rd round last weekend.
Cardiff have not picked up a win over Swansea since November of 2013 when both sides were plying their trade in the Premier League.
