Peterborough 2-1 Cardiff
From Vital Cardiff:
Cardiff City succumbed to a spirited Peterborough fightback and lost 2-1 to Posh of League One, despite a first half in which the Bluebirds dominated proceedings and should have been out of sight.
Bothroyd, Koumas and Olofinjana all went close before a lovely team move saw Danny Drinkwater fire over when he really should have done better. Peterborough Utd had their moments but the bright passing and movement from Cardiff saw them carved open time and time again. The deserved opener came via a Koumas cross where JAY BOTHROYD's header beat Joe Lewis.
Cardiff City should have been 3 goals to the good, and that gave Peterborough heart as they started the second half with a blitz on the Cardiff City goal. Heaton twice denied Mackail-Smith while Posh caused havoc with successive corners before Boyd fired over from just three yards.
Cardiff City were made to rue our profligacy in front of goal when Peterborough struck with a well deserved equaliser. The Bluebirds failed to clear the backline and Mackail-Smith collected a pass to lash home from 18 yards. You have to say they deserved it.
Cardiff created one or two half chances, but Peterborough were inspired by the comeback and undeterred by the likes of Aaron Wildig and Paul Quinn entering the pitch for Cardiff. You sensed another goal was in the offing, but few would have anticipated the quality when it came. George Boyd, always a threat cutting in unleashed a superb drive giving Heaton no chance. The defending was again sloppy, but the finish exemplary from 20 yards.
