My Favourite Ever Cardiff City Match

My favourite ever Cardiff City game has to be the 2-1 win against Leeds in the FA Cup at Ninian Park in 2002.

Leeds at the time were the kings of British football. Top of the Premiership and playing in Europe, while we were two leagues lower in the old Division Two (now League One). The atmosphere at a rammed Ninian Park was insane in what was a giant killing at the time.

Below is a video of highlights of the game.

Leeds took the lead in the first half through Mark Viduka before my favourite ever Bluebirds player, Graham Kavanagh, equalised. The skipper scored a curling 25-yard free-kick to draw us level and send me and everyone else in the stadium wild.

The Premier League leaders then had Alan Smith sent off for a foul on Andy Legg before things got even more crazy when Scott Young scored the winner three minutes from time, invoking a pitch invasion from the Cardiff fans at full-time.
