Cardiff crash out

Published Add your comment

Last year's beaten finalists Cardiff City crashed out of the Capital One Cup in the first round after blowing an early lead to go down 2-1 at npower League Two Northampton.

Heidar Helguson gave the Bluebirds a dream start by converting a second minute penalty but David Artell equalised for the Cobblers on 37 and Alex Nicholls sealed a shock win by heading home just after the restart.

Gus Poyet's Brighton were also on the end of a shock defeat as they went down 3-0 to Paolo Di Canio's newly-promoted League One Swindon at the County Ground while Bristol City were another Championship side to crash out as they were beaten 2-1 by Gillingham at Ashton Gate.
