Cardiff City’s U18s grabbed their first win of the season with a 3-0 win over Brentford.
They took an early lead when Tyler Roche intercepted a Brentford pass and broke with real determination, the midfielder played through City striker Gethyn Hill who rounded the Bees goalkeeper but his shot was blocked by their covering defence.
