Cardiff hammer Toon in friendly
The Magpies conceded three goals in the space of 10 minutes in
the first half on Saturday and, despite a better showing in the
second half, could only reduce the deficit by one goal through
Shola Ameobi’s 49th-minute penalty before Etien Velikonja restored
Cardiff’s three-goal cushion.
Aron Gunnarsson opened the scoring for the home side in the 16th
minute with a fine volley, Joe Ralls doubled the lead four minutes
later and Gunnarsson was on the scoresheet again, turning home a
low cross after 26 minutes.
