Cardiff City v Newcastle United

But it was substitute Isaac Hayden who was sent off just 20 minutes after he came on, after his third overly aggressive challenge in that short time.

Newcastle legend Shearer has said on Twitter that the penalty from 22-year-old Brazilian - who returned to the Magpies on a season-long loan deal from Chelsea in the summer transfer window - was bad.

But the dominant Bluebirds couldn't find a victor despite controlling the second half with the help of impressive debutant Harry Arter.

But Neil Etheridge was the hero for the Bluebirds, blocking Kenedy's unconvincing spot-kick to secure a share of the spoils.

The Magpies have only taken a point from their first two games this season and it won't get any easier for Rafa's men in their next three league games as they play Chelsea, defending champions Manchester City, and Arsenal.

Ayoze Perez made a vital block when Cardiff defender Sol Bamba headed Joe Ralls' corner goalwards in the 10th minute.

Víctor Camarasa was the man who won it back for Cardiff.

There is no doubting that Newcastle should be confident coming into this game; Cardiff are under pressure to deliver in front of their own fans, especially after losing their opening game at Bournemouth.

Needless to say, it's a clear red card - but Craig Pawson didn't agree! Sean Morrison's contact with the ball was clearly unintentional and quite possibly not even in the penalty area.

Luckily for Cardiff, Neil Etheridge was on hand - again - to save Kenedy's shot, his second save from the spot in successive games.

You'll seldom see a better debut than this.

Etheridge also takes a huge slice of credit for securing his team a huge point.
