Cardiff City got their 2014-15 preparations off to the best of starts after a comprehensive 3-0 victory over Carmarthen Town at Haverfordwest’s Bridge Meadow Stadium.
Splitting a talented squad into separate eleven’s for the first and second half, it was the returning Nicky Maynard who gave the Bluebirds an early advantage as he slotted home a precise Joe Mason cross at the far post. Mason was on the scoresheet himself just before the interval as he beat two before slotting home between the legs of Carmarthen stopper Lee Idzi.
With wholesale changes seeing just Joe Lewis start the second-half from the original starting-11, Federico Macheda was quickly out of the blocks to claim a debut goal on 59 minutes as he slotted home from a Fabio cross.
