Burton Albion 0 – 1 Cardiff City
Kenneth Zohore curled in a winner three minutes from the end to break the deadlock and give the Bluebirds a win in the first game of the season.
Neil Warnock was clearly happy with their start, applauding the travelling fans with the “Ayatollah”
Nigel Clough’s side had started the game looking threatening and even though Zohore had missed an opportunity early on it was Burton who looked like they should have gone in at half time in the lead.
Whatever was said in the interval certainly worked and the Bluebirds came out with renewed vigour. Bamba and Hoilett both missed chances and the City will need to be more clinical as the season progresses and the opposition become better.
