The Bluebirds welcome Wigan to Cardiff today as they look for a place in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.
The team find themselves just one win away from that place, but at the same time they're embroiled in their fight to keep up their Premier League status.
Tuesday night’s draw at home to Aston Villa night did little to ease the pressure and a loss at Swansea last weekend was a blow Cardiff could have done without.
Wigan Athletic are the current cup holders - the only team to ever win and face relegation in the same season.
Cardiff will be keen to knock them out of the FA Cup competition but not follow them into the championship.
Goals from Angel Rangel, Itay Shechter and Dwight Tiendalli helped seal the win for Swansea against Wigan. The Swans are now waiting on news of Michel Vorm's condition after he was stretched off towards the end of the second half.
A late first half goal from Roger Espinoza gave Wigan the lead against Swansea at half time.
Swansea City travel to face Wigan Athletic tonight, looking to put a dent in their former manager Roberto Martinez's attempt to stay in the top flight.
Wigan sit in the Premier League relegation zone with just three games left, and also have Saturday's FA Cup final to think about.
Swansea are in a more enviable position of mid-table obscurity, but haven't won in their last seven league games, as they fight for a top-half finish.
