Cardiff won their first league game since 14 December thanks to goals from Craig Bellamy and debutant Kenwyne Jones - moving off the bottom in the process - and Solskjaer has now turned his thoughts to Swansea.

Steven Caulker's header won the first derby of the season on home turf in November and, were Cardiff to be successful next weekend, they would become the first side to achieve the double in the 102-year history of the league fixture.

"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."
