Following a strong finish to last season under Mick McCarthy, eventually finishing in eighth spot, Cardiff City will have headed into the new season with confidence, and they earned a commendable point on the opening day with a 1-1 draw against an exciting Barnsley side.
The Bluebirds then took on League Two outfit Sutton United on home turf in the first round of this year’s EFL Cup, and they worryingly went behind inside the first five minutes as Donovan Wilson hit an early goal for the visitors.
McCarthy’s men quickly took control though, with a Marley Watkins brace putting them ahead early in the second half before Josh Murphy seemingly put the game out of sight with a late goal, only for a 90th-minute Coby Rowe finish to force them to grind out a narrow win.
Since that victory, the Welsh outfit have built a relatively strong start to the league season, comfortably defeating Blackpool 2-0 away from home before a late Aden Flint brace, including a 96th-minute equaliser, saw them snatch a point from the jaws of defeat having trailed 2-0 away at Peterborough United.

Last time out, they took their tally to eight points from the opening four games with a 3-1 home win over Millwall, as centre-back Flint again found the net twice before fellow defender Sean Morrison added a third in the final 10 minutes to seal three important points.
They will now look to continue their unbeaten start to the season when they face the tough test of a clash against Premier League opposition, as Brighton arrive in Wales on the back of consecutive Premier League wins.
