Cardiff’s good start to the Championship season continued with a win at the City Ground against Nottingham Forest on Saturday.

Goals from Jones and Mason had Cardiff in control with Antonio’s late goal for Forest a consolation with the Bluebirds seeing out a two-one win to go into the international break in the top six, following this first away win of the campaign.

Cardiff were comfortable in the first half, throughout really, with Marshall standing up to everything throughout, who reportedly remains a West Brom target despite the Bluebirds saying he’s not for sale and that move had broken down?

The lead came when Jones (23), also one of those who could be anticipated to leave before Tuesday’s transfer deadline, broke the deadlock to give Cardiff a deserved lead from a Whittingham cross.

A second came Cardiff’s way minutes into the second half when Mason (49), a reborn player since Slade brought him back into the Bluebirds side towards the end of last season, made sure that Pilkington’s goal bound effort did beat Forest ‘keeper de Vries as he headed home.

Forest had hope of claiming an unlikely point when Antonio (86), one of those that could leave our hosts too, got onto a long ball to beat Marshall.

Mason should have ensured the points, which he didn’t manage when he missed from six-yards, however it didn’t matter in the end.
