Sam Allardyce's side travelled to South Wales in fine fettle having lost just once since January.

However tonight's opponents, who are bidding to reach Wembley for the second time this season having been runners-up to Liverpool in the Carling Cup Final are also in good form having lost just once since being beaten at home by West Ham at the beginning of March.
