Peterborough 2-1 Cardiff

Peterborough 2-1 Cardiff

Peterborough   2 - 1   Cardiff

Peterborough brought Cardiff City down to earth with a bump with a spectacular triumph in the Carling Cup second round at London Road.

Jay Bothroyd struck first, heading his fifth goal in as many games after Jason Koumas' burst down the left.

But the Posh's unbeaten home run against Cardiff that goes back to 1984 continued.

Craig Mackail-Smith levelled after 74 minutes and George Boyd snatched it two minutes from the final whistle.

Boyd gave Mackail-Smith the chance to drive home from the edge of the box and the provider got his reward with a curling right-foot drive from 20 yards out.

Cardiff's defeat was far removed from the jubilation surrounding Craig Bellamy's arrival at the club last week and 4-0 Championship win over Doncaster that followed on Saturday.

Loan-signing Bellamy did not travel to London Road, where Stephen McPhail made his first appearance of the season after recovering from a knee injury as a 33rd-minute replacement for Seyi Olofinjana.

But the night belonged to the League One side and the stunning goals that brought them victory.
