Cardiff City 2 – 1 Queens Park Rangers
Things started badly for the Bluebirds at the City Stadium going behind to a goal from Matt Smith after 15 minutes.
Junior Hoilett levelled the scores seven minutes later to lift the home crowd who had been suprisingly quiet up to that point.
It took a beautiful header from Sol Bamba in the dying seconds of the first half to break the deadlock.
The second half was frantic and City could have gone further ahead but the scoreline and Championship position will keep everyone happy in this dream start to the season.
