Bristol City   3 - 0   Cardiff

Bristol City 3-0 Cardiff

Brett Pitman scored his seventh goal in as many games as Bristol City sent Cardiff crashing to a second successive defeat in the Severnside derby.

The ex-Bournemouth striker took just three minutes to convert Jon Stead's cross from the right.

Stead later supplied Lee Johnson for Bristol City's second in a similar move, and Jamal Campbell-Ryce coolly finished the third.

Michael Chopra came closest for the visitors striking the post.

Boss Dave Jones' Cardiff have won just once in their last seven games and slip to fifth in the Championship, having conceded seven goals in their last two.

But it was a much-needed boost for City whose win came for the first time in four attempts and climb away from the relegation zone.

The Robins were ahead after just three minutes when Stead crossed from the right and Pitman buried the ball home.

Cardiff rallied and David James fumbled Peter Whittingham's effort before the Bluebirds lost defender Chris Rigott to injury.

And then the visitors had goalkeeper Tom Heaton to thank for a brilliant double-save, first from Pitman and then Campbell-Ryce.

Wrong decisions cost Cardiff - Jones

Cardiff should have been level midway thorough the first half when Mark Hudson skied the ball over from six yards before Michael Chopra struck the post after latching on to Whittingham's ball into the box.

But the home side doubled their lead six minutes before the break with an almost carbon-copy of the first goal.

Stead was the supplier again from the right and this time Johnson found the back of the net.

City continued to press after the break and Cardiff were given a let-off when Campbell-Ryce chipped over the bar.

Heaton was called into action again soon after making a good save from Pitman and then from Stead's low strike.

But the Cardiff stopper could do nothing about the third goal 10 minutes after the break when Campbell-Ryce ran towards goal and coolly slotted home.

There was no way back for Cardiff and Bristol City pushed for more goals and Stead sent another attempt over the bar before having a 20-yard drive saved by Heaton.
