Adjust Comment Print

Neil Etheridge of Cardiff City dives to save a penalty from Kenedy of Newcastle United during the Premier League match between Cardiff City and Newcastle United at Cardiff City Stadium on August 18, 2018 in Cardiff, United Kingdom.

Kenedy stepped up to take the spot-kick but his weak effort was palmed out by Etheridge in what was the final moment of action, capping a miserable afternoon for the Brazilian.

"So I don't know how much more they could improve".

The Magpies have only taken a point from their first two games this season and it won't get any easier for Rafa's men in their next three league games as they play Chelsea, defending champions Manchester City, and Arsenal.

Víctor Camarasa was the man who won it back for Cardiff.

Twelve minutes in, Kenedy lost possession for the Toon Army. Neil Warnock will have been pleased with his team's display in the opening 45 minutes.

He also has thrown for fewer than 30 touchdowns and more than 10 interceptions in each of the last three campaigns. The Pittsburgh Steelers will play again on August 25th, when they take on the Tennessee Titans.

Pawson might have missed Kenedy's offence, but he got a clear view of Hayden making a studs-up challenge on Murphy and immediately sent him off.

Zohore badly misjudged a 54th-minute header when picked out by Ralls and Cardiff were still on top when their hand was strengthened.

The Bluebirds kept up their pressure and they were unlucky not to score when Zohore broke away down the right-hand side before delivering a fine low cross.

The ex-Arsenal man went flying in from behind on Josh Murphy, giving ref Pawson the flawless opportunity to prove that he hadn't forgotten his red card after all.

After Cardiff had enjoyed the better of the match, Newcastle appeared destined to snatch the points when Sean Morrison was adjudged to have handled in stoppage time.

Warnock's men just couldn't muster up enough clear-cut chances and that will be an issue for them if it continues.
