Robins Rewind: Cardiff City 1-3 Bristol City

This weekend's postponed match would have seen Lee Johnson's men host Cardiff City in the latest widely anticipated Severnside derby, so we look back at some recent memorable fixtures against the Bluebirds.

The spotlight is on the 2001/02 season, when a Scott Murray double helped City overcome the Bluebirds in South Wales.

Origins of the cupped ear

Cardiff City 1-3 Bristol City
Thursday, December 27th 2001
Ninnian Park
Division Two
Scorers: Kavanagh 47 / Murray 56, 58, Matthews 60
Attendance: 16,149

Danny Wilson's side went top of the table in this festive fixture at Ninnian Park, thanks to goals from Scott Murray and Lee Matthews

It was a result which saw Cardiff stretch their miserable run against the Robins to 20 games without a win, while City had now won eight of their last10 against the Welsh club.

Graham Kavanagh had Cardiff on the front foot quickly into the second half but Murray claimed two quick goals, piling a torrid afternoon on left-back Dean Gordon, on loan from Middlesbrough.

Matthews ended a miserable afternoon for Cardiff boss Alan Cork, slotting City's third goal to take the match out of the home side's reach.
