Swansea City and Cardiff City face off in the first South Wales derby of the season with plenty on the line for both clubs.

Russell Martin and Mick McCarthy will both be desperate to win this clash, with the former keen to prove that his possession-based philosophy works and the latter under immense pressure after five league defeats on the spin.

Both teams are languishing at the wrong end of the table, separated only by goal difference after 11 games of the season gone.

It promises to be an intriguing match-up, with a clash of styles ensuring this will be a game to keep an eye on until the final whistle.
