Cardiff   4 - 1   Burton Albion

Cardiff 4-1 Burton Albion

Cardiff 4-1 Burton Albion

Cardiff City needed extra time to see off Burton Albion in Wednesday's Carling Cup first-round tie.

Jay Bothroyd's opener for Cardiff, converting Peter Whittingham's cross, was cancelled out as Shaun Harrad punished a mistake by Anthony Gerrard.

Ross McCormack grabbed two quick-fire goals in extra time, Jason Koumas laying on his first and the Scot then bursting forward to score a low second.

Michael Chopra completed the scoring from another slide-rule Koumas pass.

Cardiff's reward for seeing off the the Brewers is a trip to Peterborough United in the second round on the week beginning 22 August, while their Welsh rivals Swansea City - who beat Barnet 3-0 on Tuesday - were also drawn away at Tranmere Rovers.

The Bluebirds opened the scoring in the 17th minute when Whittingham found himself in space on the left and crossed for Bothroyd to score his second goal in as many games with a neat close-range finish.

Their joy was short-lived, though, as an under-hit backpass from Gerrard allowed Harrad to steal in and equalise for the League Two side - his sixth goal in his last eight games - against their Championship hosts.

Dave Jones' injury problems continued to mount when he lost Bothroyd and Adam Matthews in quick succession at the start of the second half.

McCormack, strongly linked with a move to Ipswich Town this week, came on at the start of the second half to replace the injured Bothroyd and showed potential suitors his worth.

Both sides were struggling to create chances in a tame start to the second half, but it was McCormack who came closest when he found the side netting from 20 yards.

Whittingham was not too far away with a long-range effort after 69 minutes, while at the other end Greg Pearson was unlucky at the near post when his shot was deflected wide.

McCormack had a header ruled out for offside as normal time ticked away, while Chopra spurned two chances and Gabor Gyepes headed just wide as the Bluebirds upped the pressure in the first half of extra-time.

The home side finally snatched a second goal in the 107th minute when a good run from Koumas ended with a shot which was only parried by Adam Legzdins, Koumas collecting the loose ball to find McCormack who tucked the ball home via the far post.

Burton found themselves 3-1 down shortly afterwards when McCormack found some space on the edge of the box and picked his spot into the bottom corner.

Chopra completed the scoring with two minutes remaining, slotting home a superb through-ball from Koumas - who is on a season-long loan from Premier league side Wigan.


Burton Albion manager Paul Peschisolido told BBC Radio Derby:
"I'm proud of the boys, they performed ever so well.

"I'm disappointed at the 4-1 scoreline just because people will look at it and think we've been drubbed; we haven't done, we've matched them every step of the way.

"They're a quality side but we were superb today at times."
