Flying High

Cardiff City's impressive start to the season continued as they demolished a poor Bristol City side in front of over 20,000 at the Cardiff City Stadium.

The Bluebirds faithful had to wait awhile though as City carved the Robins open time after time but failed to take their chances - the best when Burke was one on one with the 'keeper.

In the end it took an own goal, the visitors skipper glancing a fizzing Matthews cross into his own net.

With Bothroyd holding the ball up well and Chopra making great runs it was only a matter of time before the next goal came, and it was a cracker.

Burke broke from deep, attacked the middle and when everyone was screaming for him to go wide to Whittingham he slipped a pass through the middle and Chopra took two touches and lifted it past the keeper for his seventh of the campaign.

The second half continue in the same vein and on 66 minutes Burke repeated his 1st half performance to put Rae through a wide open defence and he calmly slotted home for 3-0.

City were outstanding today, with my man of the match the superb Chris Burke. Top of the league and deservedly so.

Up the City!!!
