Cardiff's Solskjaer eyeing historic derby win at Swansea

Cardiff City manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is hoping to make history when his side takes on Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium in the south Wales derby next weekend.

The Bluebirds, under Malky Mackay, edged the Swans 1-0 at Cardiff City Stadium in November and now new boss Solskjaer is targeting an historic season double over their rivals.

"I know about the history of this fixture, I am aware there has never been a league double," said Solskjaer. "Let's go out and make history. Why not? This may be the time.

"I watched the south Wales derby on television earlier this season when Cardiff won and the return is going to be another tough match.

"Over the years I have watched the Swans' journey with Roberto Martinez, then Brendan (Rodgers) and now Michael (Laudrup) in charge.

"There is a passion among Cardiff fans which I knew about before and has been evident since I arrived. We understand what this fixture means to the fans."
